Personal Quote:

[on Rebecca Jenkins, who plays Polley's mother in Stories We Tell (2012)] Rebecca is an astonishing actress. She's done such an amazing job that a lot of people don't realize, until the very end of the film, that those scenes are re-creations. It's a strange thing when an actor is so good you want to hide the fact that she's in your movie. See more »

Trivia:

She visited Argentina to be part of the member of jury in Mar del Plata International Film Festival 2008. See more »

Star Sign:
