Slant Magazine
Sarah Polley is much more interested in the malleability of memory and the consequential refractions felt throughout her kin rather than telling a linear narrative. Full Review
Amanda May Meyncke
This funny and touching film could do with a bit of editing. It tends to drag a bit, especially near the end, and though we’re privy to the thoughts and feelings of Polley’s family, we’re given scant verbalized insight into her own thinking. Full Review
Eric Kohn
Stories We Tell marks the finest of Polley's filmmaking skills by blending intimacy and intrigue to remarkable effect. Full Review
Oliver Lyttelton
The Playlist
Fans of Polley’s work to date will be delighted by a documentary that serves simultaneously as a gripping mystery, a moving record of a family and a fascinating investigation into the nature of truth, memory, and the documentary form itself. Full Review
Peter Bradshaw
The Guardian
Polley tackles painful issues with candour and tact. She has a gripping tale to tell. It's a film that raises questions about the ownership of memory and ownership of narrative. Full Review
