Take this waltz

Director: Sarah Polley

Starring: Seth Rogen, Michelle Williams, Luke Kirby, Sarah Silverman

A slow moving love story involving three people. Margot (Michelle Williams) is in love with her cookbook author husband Lou (Rogen), and lives happily in a Toronto townhouse. The she goes to Nova Scotia on a work trip and has a brief flirtatious relationship with Daniel (Luke Kirby) a handsome artist, who it transpires lives close by. They share cab ride back from the airport and realize something significant has happened between them. Margot tries to avoid contact but is drawn to her new paramour. Over the hot summer, Margot and Daniel keep finding ways to bump into each other, stealing moments together to dance around their mutual attraction without ever acting on it. Torn between her genuine feelings of love for Lou and her schoolgirl crush for Daniel the more she tries to suppress her feelings the more erotic they become. The title comes from a Leonard Cohen song heard when the inevitable finally happens between Margot and Daniel. Good performances from the cast.
