Stories We Tell
Wednesday 14th August 2013
Inspired, inspiring, tender and touching, Stories We Tell, released on DVD and Blu-ray by Curzon Film World on 23rd September 2013, is a brilliant documentary portrait of a complicated yet deeply loving family from Oscar®-nominated writer/director Sarah Polley.
Taking her cue from a family joke about not resembling her father, Polley sets out to uncover the truth about her mysterious mother and her own uncertain lineage. Playfully yet pointedly interrogating a cast of blood relatives and family friends, she slowly pieces together a puzzle of conflicting stories, myths and memories until she makes a discovery that will shake her family to the core.
At once an exploration of the function of storytelling, the elusive nature of truth and what it means to be part of a family, 'Stories We Tell' is funny, profound, poignant and one of the most original films of the year.
