After her 2006 drama Away From Her garnered two Oscar nominations (Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Actress), Sarah Polley returns with Take This Waltz. The film stars Seth Rogen, Michelle Williams, Sarah Silverman, Luke Kirby, and will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall. We now have three teaser clips from the film.
I’ve only checked out the first one since I’ll wait to see the full thing in a month, but it presents a more bright and lively approach than her last effort. Michelle Williams is always fantastic and Seth Rogen shows more acting chops in another TIFF entry, 50/50; one of my favorites this year. I’m very much looking forward to this one and you can see them all below via Awards Daily.
Synopsis: When Margot, 28, meets Daniel, their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction: she is happily married to Lou, a celebrated 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. Margot finally gives in to desire and in doing so, discovers some unsettling truths about herself. 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.
The Toronto International Film Festival runs September 8th to 18th. Expect a 2011 release for Take This Waltz.
