Canada | 2012 | Sarah Polley
Latest film by actress and director Sarah Polley is one of the most acclaimed movies of the past year. (It has an overall metacritic.com score of 90 out of 100, and a 95% "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes.) Polley turns her camera on her father, siblings, other relatives, and family friends to explore not only the secret life of her late actress mother, who died in 1990, but also the myths and ambiguities surrounding Polley's own birth 34 years ago. The result is fascinating kaleidoscope of lore, lies, half-truths, re-creations, and revelations.
108 min. 35mm.
