Watch: The Momentary Melancholy & Ridiculous Longing Of The 'Take This Waltz' Trailer

We’ve been eagerly awaiting “Take This Waltz,” Sarah Polley‘s directorial follow-up to her excellent “Away From Her,” and with the film set to hit theaters later this year, we now have our first trailer for the movie which promises to be another solid effort from the writer/actress/director.

The film stars Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen as a young couple who struggle with monogamy and fidelity, as the former is torn between her husband and a new man. Sarah Silverman and Luke Kirby round out the cast that has been described as sexually frank, somewhat explicit, but bracingly honest about the complex emotions that arise out of sex and love. Featuring a soundtrack heavy on Canadian legend Leonard Cohen (not surprising, given the film’s title), our A-grade review from TIFF called the movie “a modernist version of a late ’60s or early ’70s relationship film” that delivers “a knockout punch.”

No release date yet, but Magnolia Pictures is expected to unspool the film this summer. The trailer is below (thanks to AlexLeRose for the heads up) and in case you missed it, click here for three clips from the film.

Know we've already had this out, but I think I saw a totally different film than you. It's easily my favorite for 2012 as of right now. I love this film. When I caught it at VIFF last year, I was blown away by it. Can't wait to see it again.


I'm just much more interested in Seth Rogen in this cool Canadian film.

If it weren't for "Twixt" this would have been the worst film I saw at TIFF.

Saw this at TIFF and Michelle Williams delivers an Oscar worthy performance. Had this film been released before My Week with Marilyn, I have a feeling Williams' would have been nominated and most likely been the front runner. Unlike the Marilyn film (strong performance in a weak film), it's a strong performance in a strong film. Seth Rogen is fantastic as well.


What is the song in this trailer?
