Recently just opened to a limited release (today more general release) in USA is Sarah Polley’s TAKE THIS WALTZ starring Michelle Williams,Seth Rogen. Thanks to Studio Canal the film will get a cinema run in UK&Ireland and this afternoon we received the film’s UK trailer and official poster.
Take This Waltz tells the story of a young couple (Williams & Rogen) Margot & Lou who struggle with monogamy and fidelity with Margot torn apart as he has to choose from a new mystery man. Luke Kirby plays that mystery man with Sarah Silverman (showing off her acting chops for a change) and Aaron Abrams making up the rest of the cast.
The film debuted at last years Toronto Film Festival drawing some excellent reviews and at times it was one of those films that I was curious about but couldn’t why I was attracted to it. Possibly it’s the indie Lost In Translation feel to it that did it for as that’s one of my favourite films or it’s not blockbuster comic book film so you do feel a little bit grounded giving the brain time to recoup.
Check out the UK trailer and poster (in the traditional UK quad style) for TAKE THIS WALTZ and give your brain some comicbook blockbuster rest with a charming little bittersweet summer tale on August 17th.
From Sarah Polley, the director of the Sundance award-winning AWAY FROM HER, comes this summer’s must-see romantic drama TAKE THIS WALTZ (in cinemas August 17th) . A funny, powerful and beautifully bittersweet story that follows Margot (Michelle Williams BLUE VALENTINE, MY WEEK WITH MARILYN), as she struggles to choose between two different types of love. As her mind and heart battle against each other, and caught in the swealtering heat of a hot Toronto summer, Margot uncovers and ignites a side to herself that she never knew existed. TAKE THIS WALTZ also features standout performances from Seth Rogen (50/50, SUPERBAD), Sarah Silverman (SCHOOL OF ROCK) and Luke Kirby (SHATTERED GLASS).
