Sarah Polley

Writer/director, 'Away From Her'

Few young actresses command the respect of 32-year-old Toronto-born Polley, whose feature writing-directing debut “Away From Her” establishes her as a legitimate triple threat. In this devastating account of a married couple torn apart by Alzhei-mer’s, Polley calls upon a wisdom far beyond her years and coaxes powerful performances from the likes of Julie Christie, Gordon Pinsent and Olympia Dukakis. Her poignant adaptation of the Alice Munro short story captures the pain of a memory one couple can’t seem to let go.
