12. Stories we Tell
In Theaters:Friday, May 10, 2013
Why we're excited:"Away From Her" and "Take This Waltz," Sarah Polley's two very different fictional studies of relationships in crisis, established her as one of her generation's most exciting filmmakers. But it's her surprising first foray into documentary that represents her most moving and accomplished work yet. A playful but profoundly personal family memoir that bends the rules of non-fiction storytelling in provocative and thrilling way, "Stories We Tell" has had critics chattering since debuting at Venice last year, and will certainly be one of the summer's specialty conversation pieces – though don't listen to the talk too closely, since the less you know about this one-of-a-kind film going in, the better. Suffice to say that if you think you couldn't care less about Sarah Polley's parents' marriage, you'll be proved wrong by the time the credits roll.
