Film: Take this Waltz

September 18, 2012 @ 8:00 pm - 12:00 am


When Margot (Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine), 28, meets handsome artist Daniel (Luke Kirby), their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction; she is happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), a cookbook writer. When Margot learns that Daniel lives across the street from them, the certainty about her domestic life shatters. She and Daniel steal moments throughout the steaming Toronto summer, their eroticism heightened by their restraint. Swelteringly hot, bright and colorful like a bowl of fruit, Take This Waltz leads us, laughing, through the familiar, but uncharted question of what long-term relationships do to love, sex, and our images of ourselves. Also starring Sarah Silverman. Warmly human, funny and bittersweet, Take This Waltz deftly avoids romantic clichés and paints an unusually true and unsentimental portrait of adult relationships. Written and directed by Sarah Polley (Away From Her).
