Afternoon Distraction : Stories We Tell

on June 13, 2013 in Afternoon Distraction with 4 comments by

Lyndsay and I saw this documentary last night, Stories We Tell, and it is absolutely genius and heartbreaking and beautiful and redemptive and we both cried.

So. There’s that.

While this isn’t today afternoon distraction in it’s purest Annie-is-wasting-her-life-on-the-internet form, I have spent lots of time today reading up on this director and her other movies, so… in theory, it’s still distracting me from work.


I hope this film is playing in your town. It’s worth whatever your indie theater charges you to see it.

    Wow I want to talk to you about this movie! It sort of bothered me. I thought it was so well executed but it was so odd that there were discussing adultery SO casually.

      Erin, that’s a great point. It was strange, wasn’t it, how they just acted like that was to be expected from a gregarious personality like the Mom’s?
