Sarah Polley has just won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for her film Women Talking (2023). It was adapted from the novel of the same name by Miriam Toews. Polley was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Director, and won a Writer’s Guild Award for Adapted Screenplay earlier in March too.

After making short films, Sarah Polley made her feature-length directorial debut with the drama film Away from Her in 2006. She received an Oscar nomination for the screenplay, which she’d adapted from the Alice Munro story ‘The Bear Came Over the Mountain’. Her other projects include the documentary film Stories We Tell (2012), which won the New York Film Critics Circle prize and the National Board of Review award for best documentary; the miniseries adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s novel Alias Grace (2017); and the romantic comedy Take This Waltz (2011).

As a child Sarah starred in the long-running children’s series Road to Avonlea and in Terry Gilliam’s The Adventures of Baron Munchausen@realsarahpolley
