When Margot (Michelle Williams), meets Daniel (Aaron Abrams), their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction; she is happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), a cookbook writer. When she 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 colorful like a bowl of fruit, Sarah Polley’s 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, Sarah Polley's honest, sure-footed, emotionally generous second feature. Ms. Williams, one of the bravest and smartest actresses working in movies today, portrays a young woman who is indecisive and confused, but never passive."
- A.O. Scott, New York Times
"As memorable as it is insightful, Take This Waltz is one of the best films of the year. "
- Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Williams is so good, so natural, so believable in the role that it's easy to forgive her character -- or at least wish her well. That's no small feat, because she can drive you crazy."
- Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"Known for comedy, Rogen and Silverman are the film's most delightful surprises, and their performances shine."
- Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
