Stories We Tell, by the Oscar nominated writer/director Sarah Polley, is according to its cover blurb: An inspired, tender and touching portrait of a complicated yet deeply loving family (her own). Taking her cue from a family joke about not resembling her father, Polley sets out to uncover the truth about her mysterious mother and her own uncertain lineage. Playfully yet pointedly interrogating a cast of blood relatives and family friends, she slowly pieces together a puzzle of conflicting stories, myths and memories until she makes a discovery that will shake the
family to the core.

Stories’ is “funny, profound, poignant and one of the most original films of the year” (2012).
According to one of our own, this was one film that they had ‘hugely enjoyed and which had really stayed with them’.

Don’t miss this one – you can always record the final episode of Kiri!

For anyone who missed I Daniel Blake on 10th January, I would encourage you to borrow the DVD; it really was as affecting as I’d hoped – uplifting and depressing in equal measure – and a scathing attack on aspects of an uncaring, inefficient social security system. Eye-opening.
