Fans of Sarah Polley’s stellar directorial debut “Away From Her” have been itching for a follow-up, and for good reason: That film came out in 2006. The Canadian actress/writer/director is finally back this summer with her anticipated second feature, “Take This Waltz,” starring Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman.
The romantic dramedy debuted to acclaim at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival (it has a B+ on Criticwire), where it was picked up by Magnolia Pictures for distribution. The company just premiered its full-length trailer for the film, following some promising clips that made their way online last year, and it’s a total charmer.
In the film, penned by Polley, Williams plays a married woman who falls an attractive artist while married to a less suave man (Seth Rogen).
“Take This Waltz” hits select theaters June 29.
