Take This Waltz

Lists: Drama, Comedy

Brief Synopsis: "Michelle Williams plays twenty-eight-year-old Margot, happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), a good-natured cookbook author. But when Margot meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), a handsome artist who lives across the street, their mutual attraction is undeniable. Warmly human, funny and bittersweet, TAKE THIS WALTZ deftly avoids romantic clich├ęs and paints an unusually true and unsentimental portrait of adult relationships."

CinemaVisitor Erik75 - Bizarre and atmospheric indie romantic drama. The vivid colours that are present throughout the film give it an extra sweetness and warmth.

Bryan Lienesch42 - The fatal flaw with 'Take This Waltz' is its main character, played by Michelle Williams. Neurotic, selfish, and unloving, it's virtually impossible to get behind the person that is the closest thing to an antagonist in the film.
