Drama
Sarah Polley proves that her magnificent feature directorial debut Away From Her was no fluke with this offbeat romantic comedy that casts Michelle Williams as a reasonably happily married woman who finds herself attracted to the artsy dude across the street (Luke Kirby). Seth Rogen plays the affable husband who thinks life is OK—up until life throws a curveball. The movie is far from predictable, and it brings a fresh approach to the well-worn genre. Williams is characteristically terrific in the role, and Rogen continues to prove that he is very much at home in heavy movies. Polley, who also wrote the movie, has amazing command of her performers as a director. She truly is one of the greater talents behind a camera these days. Sarah Silverman has a supporting role that offers quite a few surprises.

Portland Mercury Marriage vs. Desire Sarah Polley brilliantly guts the romcom in Take This Waltz. by Paul Constant 07/19/2012
The Coast Halifax Take This Waltz Novel idea, a Canadian film set in a Canadian city that's just about being a person rather than being Canadian. by Molly Segal 06/28/2012
Charleston City Paper Michelle Williams makes a difficult decision in Take This Waltz There's a permanent glow to each of the characters of Take This Waltz, the second film from Canadian actress-turned-writer/director/producer Sarah Polley. That could be due to its setting in a Toronto summer, or it could be caused by the pressures — whether marital, sexual, or emotional — building within each of the characters as they navigate the pleasures of old love and new love. by Susan Cohen 08/29/2012
