Sarah Polley is Directing Christie and Dukakis?


Sarah Polley may best be known as the blonde running from the zombies in the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead, but she has honed her skills and is now ready to direct Julie Chrisite and Olympia Dukakis in her writing and directing debut Away From Her.

The film is based on the short story “The Bear Came Over the Mountain,” by Canadian author Alice Munro, about a couple whose 50-year marriage is tested when the wife goes into a nursing home for treatment for memory loss and falls for another patient.

Filming begins next week on the project in rural southern Ontario and and will wrap on April 3.
