Description

When Margot (Michelle Williams), 28, meets 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.

Synopsis
Sarah Polley's sophomore directorial effort TAKE THIS WALTZ stars Michelle Williams as Margot, a 28-year-old Toronto woman who has been married for five years to Lou (Seth Rogen), a cookbook author who specializes in chicken dishes. One day she meets Daniel (Luke Kirby) her neighbor across the street, and there is a quick and lasting connection between the two. While she remains faithful to Lou, she finds herself drawn more and more to this seemingly perfect other man. Eventually, Margot is forced to confront the truth about herself, and share her feelings with her unsuspecting husband. TAKE THIS WALTZ had its world premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.

Movie Critics
Box Office
3 stars out of 5 -- "Polley's investigation into the spaces between couples has a gravity that's sobering....Williams embodies Margot's inner turmoil with an unfussy sense of terrified instability..."
Nick Schager (7 Jun 2012, )
Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "Sarah Polley as an actress and filmmaker has a grounding in realism. There is a lot of truth in this portrait of a marriage running out of the will to survive."
Roger Ebert (11 Jul 2012, )
Entertainment Weekly
"Sarah Polley digs into the ambiguity of Margot's motivations, and Williams wears messy feelings on the outside." -- Grade: B-
Owen Gleiberman (6 Jul 2012, )
New York Times
"[An] honest, sure-footed, emotionally generous second feature."
A. O. Scott (29 Jun 2012, )
Sight and Sound
"[U]ltimately, the bittersweet truth of Polley's beautiful film is that it's inevitable: no matter what we love, we are always ourselves, and with it we are always alone."
Catherine Wheatley (1 Sep 2012, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "Polley finesses broad strokes with detail....She gets to the truths about love."
Kevin Harley (1 Sep 2012, )
