This film was our programming director's absolute favorite at Sundance this year - you won't want to miss it!
In this inspired, genre-twisting new film, Oscar-nominated  writer/director Sarah Polley discovers that the truth depends on who's  telling it. Polley is both filmmaker and detective as she investigates  the secrets kept by a family of storytellers. She playfully interviews  and interrogates a cast of characters of varying reliability, eliciting refreshingly candid, yet mostly contradictory, answers to the same  questions. As each relates their version of the family mythology,  present-day recollections shift into  nostalgia-tinged glimpses of their mother, who departed too soon,  leaving a trail of unanswered questions. Polley unravels the paradoxes  to reveal the essence of family: always complicated, warmly messy and  fiercely loving.
