"Stories We Tell"
One of the best films to hit the fall 2012 festival circuit, Sarah Polley's documentary memoir "Stories We Tell," is a portrait of the Canadian writer-director-actress's family history and secrets, and a personal exploration into the smudged line between truth and mythology. Watch the new trailer below.

The film manages to be both melancholy and hilarious, with Polley proving to be a shrewd interviewer, grilling her extended family and friends about her late mother who died in the 1980s after losing a fight to cancer. As Polley pushes her loved ones for information, she realizes the complicated nature of her parents' romance, and her unique relationship to them.

The film was snapped up by Roadside Attractions following its showings at Venice, Telluride and TIFF, and hits theaters stateside on May 17. It will be a contender in this year's awards race.
