Stories we Tell (Sarah Polley – 2012) A

This is a hybrid of a film. Part documentary, part narrated story and part plotted scenes. Sara Polley sets off to make a documentary about her family and the stories she has always heard around the dinner table, from friends and siblings. She does that with perfect scene recreations, interviews and a script narrated by her father. She does not expect to uncover all kinds of truths about her parents and especially her free-spirited interesting actress mother who died of cancer a few years back. It’s a sweet and really touching story of families, parenthood and the itch to really find out who you are.
