Toronto-born actress, writer, director, and Academy Award nominee Sarah Polley revisits her celebrated directorial debut Away from Her on Monday, March 27.

An adaptation of Alice Munro's short story "A Bear Came Over a Mountain," Away from Her follows an elderly married couple (Gordon Pinsent and Julie Christie) facing the toughest test of their decades-long relationship when one of them is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

This event is part of Books on Film — an ongoing TIFF series hosted by Eleanor Wachtel, bringing together book and film lovers to examine great cinema that began as outstanding literature.
