"She walked loud," enthuses Mark about his vibrant mother, Diane, and others describe the actress as "warm", "contagious" and a "larger-than-life" personality. It takes 10 minutes to be hooked by Sarah Polley's beautiful film, which documents her family, candidly and movingly, through old footage, reconstruction and talking heads. There's a familial twist, as there usually is with these kind of docs, but it is revealed with grace and intelligence.
