Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Sarah Polley's remarkable Stories We Tell transcends every cliche in this confessional/investigatory genre, and it's one of the year's highlights.
Fresh: Stories We Tell is one of those movies you watch on a screen and replay in your head for days, moving between its many levels of inquiry and touched, always, by Polley's compassion toward her relatives in particular and people in general.
Fresh: Stories We Tell is not just very moving; it is an exploration of truth and fiction that will stay with you long after repeated viewings.
Fresh: Deeply affectionate and sometimes very moving.
The Best Film of 2013
Sarah Polley's STORIES WE TELL is the work of a genuine master storyteller at the height of her powers. This is a crowing achievement in story structure, the nature of storytelling, and what cinema can still do when in the hands of someone with a vision and a story really worth telling. Just an astonishing achievement.
This is a story worth watching not only for how well it is told and how brilliantly it is directed, but for the tenderness, love, acceptance and forgiveness that each family member shows

This movie isn't what I expected, but i was able to shift gears and enjoy it for what it is, an exploration of self as much as a search for truth.
