Take This Waltz

Take This Waltz is a 2011 Canadian romantic comedy-drama film. The film centers on Margot, a 28 year oldfreelance writer who lives in a charming house on a leafy street in Toronto's Little Portugal neighbourhood, as she struggles with and examines her feelings for Lou, her husband of five years, while exploring a new relationship with Daniel, an artist and rickshaw driver who lives across the street.

On Sunday night M and I watched this (him for the second time) and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  In my mind, Michelle Williams can do no wrong.  The roles she chooses may not be the most main stream, but they are real.  There were many times throughout the movie where I felt like I was looking through a window into a relationship. Knowing how un-real movie sets are, anytime a movie can a capture moments like the ones in this movie, it makes me like it that much more.  The film was directed by Sarah Polley, Avonlea anyone?  We joke about how she is the only woman M would leave me for.  She is such a talent.  If you Netflix queue is lacking check this movie out.  You won't be disappointed.
