BACKSTORY SUMMER PICKS: A gorgeous meditation on love and the lives parents live before their children are born.

There's more to every love story than what we choose to tell...

It’s spring and Lara’s three grown daughters have returned to the family orchard. While picking cherries, they beg their mother to tell them the one story they’ve always longed to hear – of the film star with whom she shared a stage, and a romance, years before. Tom Lake is a meditation on youthful love, married love, and the lives parents lead before their children are born.

Both hopeful and elegiac, it explores what it means to be happy even when the world is falling apart.

Or how about...
