Stars: Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen, Luke Kirby, Sarah Silverman | Written and Directed by Sarah Polley
When I saw the names Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman listed in the cast for Take This Waltz, I made the incorrect assumption that it would be a zany knockabout comedy. Instead, it turned out to subtle and bittersweet romantic drama, which by turns frustrated, annoyed, charmed, delighted and tested the viewer.
Michelle Williams plays Margot, who lives with her husband Lou (Rogen). Whilst away on business, she has a chance encounter with Daniel (Luke Kirby) and the two form a bond of attraction and friendship. This leads to awkwardness when it turns out that Daniel has recently moved in across the street. The pair fall deeply in love and Margot must decide whether or not to break up her marriage.
