Stories We Tell (2012)

This was one of the biggest buzzed about films in the (Canadian) film festival circuit last year!  And it is Canadian!  Sarah Polley is rapidly becoming one of the country's most talented filmmakers. She follows up Take This Waltz (2011), a sometimes emotionally difficult romantic-drama about love, lust, and infidelity, with a documentary touching on some of the same topics.  Polley's new film attempts to delve deep into her own recent family history, posing difficult questions, and figuring out some startling truths about her own identity.  The trailer points us towards what these issues may be, but I am intrigued to see the film and how it all plays out!  I have heard nothing but praise for this so I am glad it is getting the wider attention it appears to deserve.
