No one does melodrama like Michelle Williams. After her emotional performance in last year's Blue Valentine, the actress is set to premiere Take This Waltz at the Toronto International Film Festival this September. The drama, which was filmed in Toronto's trendy Queen West neighborhood, was directed by Sarah Polley and also stars Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman.
"When Margot, 28, meets Daniel, their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction: she is happily married to Lou, a celebrated cookbook writer. But when Margot learns that Daniel lives across the street from them, the certainty about her domestic life shatters. She and David steal moments throughout the steaming Toronto summer, their eroticism heightened by their restraint. Margot finally gives in to desire and in doing so, discovers some unsettling truths about herself. Sweltering hot, bright and colorful like a bowl of fruit, "Take This Waltz" leads us, laughing, through the familiar but unchartered question of what long-term relationships do to love, sex and our images of ourselves.
