Sarah Polley Courage

This one is a cover of the song Courage (originally by The Tragically Hip) sung by the great Canadian actor (and now director!) Sarah Polley, from the movie The Sweet Hereafter. It’s one of those movies that is difficult to watch for many people because of it’s emotional subject matter, conveyed intelligently by one of Canada’s best filmmakers, Atom Egoyan.

Sarah performed this a few years ago while she was a still teenager and I think this is a beautiful compliment to the Hip’s powerful version.

“So there’s no simple explanation for anything important any of us do
and yeah, the human tragedy consists in the necessity
of living with the consequences under pressure, under pressure.
Courage, my word, it didn’t come, it doesn’t matter,
Courage, it couldn’t come at a worse time.”
