Filming begins this July on Sarah Polley’s sophomore project, Take this Waltz – a project that will lense in Toronto and which has a great chance, if rushed of course, to be shown at Sundance next January. We’ve got a more complete description of the synopsis below, some promo art work and one casting item that hasn’t been mentioned much is that Michelle Williams’ love interest will be Canadian actor Luke Kirby.
When 28-year-old Margot (Williams) meets Daniel (Kirby), their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction: she is happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), 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. Swelteringly hot, bright and colorful like a bowl of fruit, Take This Waltz leads us, laughing, through the familiar but uncharted question of what long-term relationships do to love, sex, and our images of ourselves.
