‘Take This Waltz’ Trailer Dances Around Infidelity
Having played both the Toronto and Vancouver Film festivals last year, it’s finally time for Sarah Polley’s ‘Take This Waltz’ to hit theaters June 29. The film stars Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen, Luke Kirby and Sarah Silverman in the tale of a woman who meets someone she’s attracted to, but is already happily married.
The film has already netted largely positive reviews, and Drew McWeeny of Hitfix hailed it as one of the top five pictures of last year, so it’s definitely one to keep an eye out for. This is Polley’s second film as a director, she also helmed 2006′s ‘Away From Her,’ but she’s still probably best known for her role as the young girl in Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Adventures of Baron Munchausen’ or her role in Zack Snyder’s ‘Dawn of the Dead.’ This sort of material seems tailor-made for Williams, who went from TV star to one of America’s great actresses relatively quickly.
The trailer has an interesting tone, in that usually stories like this usually doom cheaters to suffer horrible fates. Here, Polley seems to have taken a page from David Lean’s ‘Brief Encounter,’ and made everyone reasonable people who just happen to fall in love. Of course, we’ll know more when we see it. There’s no mention of how the limited release will go, but if it’s anything like other Magnolia releases, it’s likely the film will hit VOD around the same time.
