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. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Dec 31, 2013

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 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.

refreshingly candid…..

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
