Sarah Polley's sophomore directorial effort Take This Waltz stars Michelle Williams as Margot, a 28-year-old Toronto woman who has been married for five years to Lou (Seth Rogen), a cookbook author who specializes in chicken dishes. One day she meets Daniel (Luke Kirby) her neighbor across the street, and there is a quick and lasting connection between the two. While she remains faithful to Lou, she finds herself drawn more and more to this seemingly perfect other man. Eventually, Margot is forced to confront the truth about herself, and share her feelings with her unsuspecting husband. Take This Waltz had its world premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Take this schmaltz...please. I love art films and I think the cinematography was terrific and Vanessa Williams was enigmatic as always (you can ask her to say :French Toast" and it comes out both sexy and innocent). But the rest of this was BORING. The Men were boring, the plot was boring, the dialogue was (mostly) boring and Sarah Polley could't direct her way out of a cardboard box. It was that bad, An embarrassment to indi film in general and Canada in particular.
Suckeee movie and I could have avoided it. There are some reviewers I
tend to agree with repeatedly.....why not listen to them! This is a
story about a selfish immature girl-woman who cuts through the lives of
others without consequences. Slow and boring. I'm learning. Michelle
Williams has too much talent to be wasted on such fluff. There is an
attempt at comedy but it doesn't score. There is also an attempt at
romance with the same results. The full frontal female nudity is
unnecessary and serves no purpose. The sexual frontal nudity doesn't
seem to either but at least there is a reason for that; however, not
the three ways. Maybe 2 guys and a girl or two girls and a guy were
suppose to show that she had become more liberated but something must
have ended up on the cutting floor because it didn't make sense. Waste
of time and money.
