"FLAT-OUT SEXY … SUPERB PERFORMANCES BY MICHELLE WILLIAMS AND SETH ROGEN."
"WONDERFUL...HONEST, SURE-FOOTED AND EMOTIONALLY GENEROUS..."
"A WONDERFUL MOVIE. Honest, sure-footed and emotionally generous, it’s full of music, color and warmth. MICHELLE WILLIAMS IS ONE OF THE BRAVEST AND SMARTEST ACTRESSES WORKING TODAY."
"GRADE A: SUPERB, A KNOCKOUT PUNCH. Sarah Polley is one of film’s most exciting and important new directors. I cannot praise Williams and Rogen enough."
"FLAT-OUT SEXY. An intelligent, perceptive drama with superb performances by Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen, in a wonderfully affectionate, possibly career-best turn."
"A THRILLING AND UNPREDICTABLE RIDE, and a heartbreaking love story. Frank, erotic, often very funny and sometimes startling. It’s not a movie for everyone — BUT IF IT’S FOR YOU, YOU’LL NEVER FORGET IT."
"A deceptively candy-colored existentialist rom-com—WHICH IS TO SAY THERE'S NOTHING QUITE LIKE IT."
"I’VE FALLEN HEAD OVER HEELS for Take This Waltz. It bowls you over, and confirms Polley as a serious, intelligent talent."
"Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen both hit career highs. Polley is an empathetic listener and shaper of fine performances."
"Director Polley shows a wonderful eye."
"I’m all for ‘messy, unapologetic stories with women at the center’ - if they’re interesting ones. Like ‘Take This Waltz.’ Director Polley shows a lovely visual sense and a real interest in people."
"MICHELLE WILLIAMS AND LUKE KIRBY SIZZLE ONSCREEN."
"The real beauty of Polley’s directing is its celebration of imperfection."
"The movie radiates a melancholy glow."
"DOWNRIGHT BRACING TO WATCH. Beautifully shot, smartly scripted."
"A FASCINATING AND UNFORGETTABLE DRAMA. Michelle Williams gives the performance of her career."
"INCREDIBLY POWERFUL. Riveting dialogue and unforgettable performances. Michelle Williams gives a performance as brilliant as anything she’s done before."
"PASSIONATE AND REMARKABLE – I LOVED IT FIERCELY. Take This Waltz counts among its many virtues a career-best performance from Seth Rogen and the lushest summer-in-the-city visuals this side of Do The Right Thing. It has stuck with me indelibly."
"WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME A ROMANTIC COMEDY STUCK WITH YOU FOR DAYS? Emotionally profound, it’s human drama of the utmost clarity."
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 that lives across the street, their mutual attraction is undeniable. Swelteringly hot, bright and colorful, Take This Waltz leads us, laughing, through the familiar, but uncharted question of what long-term relationships do to love, sex and our image of ourselves.
