"take this waltz": the movie you need to see this summer

Luke Kirby and Michelle Williams  (c) Magnolia Pictures


You just have to watch the trailer for "Take This Waltz" and you can feel the steamy summer heat that rises on a humid evening in the city. That's what this movie does. It makes you feel. You feel the heat. You feel the longing. You feel.

Michelle Williams stars as Margot, a woman happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen) a lovable cookbook author. One day she meets Daniel (Luke Kirby) an artist and her world as she knows it shifts in its axis. Watching Michelle as Margot navigate the relationships between Lou and Daniel is achingly beautiful,  poignant and extraordinarily touching.

If you've had the cheeseburgers, beer and big blockbuster summer movie experience already, this is the lovely dinner in the tucked away little bistro followed by the movie that will enrapture you. Even if you don't think of yourself as an indie movie person, this is a film that will stay with you even as your tan fades when September comes.

"Take This Waltz" is available is select cites and on demand.
