Dir. Sarah Polley, Canada/Spain/Japan, 2011, 116 mins
Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen, Sarah Silverman, Luke Kirby

When Margot (Williams), meets Daniel (Kirby), their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction; she is happily married to Lou (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 colourful, 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.

‘Sarah Polley’s second film is a masterfully painted portrait of an ordinary marriage under threat’ – David Hughes, Empire ****
