Sarah Polley's Stories We Tell

Sarah Polley's other 2012 film (the former being Michelle Williams marital drama Take This Waltz) is a postmodern-ish documentary about her own family; part interview doc, part found footage, part scripted, all heart, all smarts.

Stories won raves in Sundance and over at Awardsdaily, Sasha Stone has it up as a dark horse Best Picture contender. Polley is a sensitive filmmaker and it's easy to see how her intimate, intuitive approach could deliver a truly fresh indie classic.
