Take This Waltz DVD

Starring: Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen, Luke Kirby, Sarah Silverman

Director: Sarah Polley

Rating: 3/5

Sarah Polley grabbed everyone's attention back in 2007 with Away From Her and now she is back with her latest project Take This Waltz.

The movie sees her team up with the fantastic Michelle Williams while this is a completely different performance from funnyman Seth Rogen.

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.

When Margot learns that Daniel lives across the street from them, the certainty about her domestic life shatters.

She and Daniel 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.

Take This Waltz is one of those movies that will charm some people and yet boar the socks of others and yet I found myself in between those two points.

There is no doubt that Michelle Williams gives a captivating performance as the enigma that is Margot.

Margot is on a journey of self discovery with this movie as she tries to find out who she is and what exactly she wants from her life.

Seth Rogen is also fantastic as Lou and this is the best performance that he has given in a long time - it is also great to see him in a straight role giving a great dramatic performance.

Their relationship is painful to watch because they are trying to make something work that clearly isn't and they are both afraid to admit the truth to each other.

This is a relationship where they do not discuss what they want or need or how they feel and it leaves them with nowhere to go.

Margot's attraction to Daniel is immediate and you feel it from the first to the very last frame.

There is a real chemistry between Williams and Luke Kirby that works really well.

But what really makes this relationship powerful is the restraint that they both show as their 'romance' grows.

While there are some great performances the pace of this movie is what really lets it down as it struggles to keep you totally engaged from start to finish.
