We got what looked to be a slightly unfinished trailer for Sarah Polley‘s follow-up to the Oscar-nominated Away From Her earlier this year, but now an official theatrical one has arrived. We saw Take This Waltz, featuring Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen, last fall and were mixed, praising the acting but saying some of plot rang false. I’m personally checking it out in just a few hours so I’ll refrain from watching these tease, which you can see below.
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.
Take This Waltz arrives in theaters on June 29th.
