Stories: We All Got ‘Em

Canadian actor/director/singer Sarah Polley recently revealed that her father isn’t really her father. Her mom, who died of cancer when young Sarah was only 11, had an affair.

Why is this important? Because in the 33-year-old Polley’s latest film, Stories We Tell, she explores who her mother was and what led her to do the things she did, with an emphasis on how “necessary creating narrative is for us to make sense of our bewildering lives.”
