Sarah Polley

September 4, 1997

Talk about a triple threat. Sarah Polley came to Toronto’s 1997 film festival in not one, but three films – The Sweet Hereafter, The Hanging Garden and The Planet Of Junior Brown. NOW talked to her when she was an 18-year-old acting sensation (page 51 of the issue). Now she’s a triple threat of a different kind: director, screenwriter – Oscar-nominated for her adaptation of Away From Her – and, most recently, documentary filmmaker. Her new doc about family secrets, Stories We Tell, was a critical smash at this year’s TIFF. It opens in theatres this week. For an interview with Polley, see page 66.
