Review: Take This Waltz

Nowadays, quirky films can be considered just as tiresome as the found footage genre. We see it so often that the bar is constantly being raised higher and higher, making it more difficult for filmmakers to offer up amusing silly situations and make them feel authentic. However, when you take on such an endeavor and are so steadfast to nailing every detail of the process of bringing a very specific vision to life, like writer-director Sarah Polley, you’re bound to end up with at least some degree of success.

While on a business trip re-writing the brochure for a historical reenactment facility, Margot (Michelle Williams) meets Daniel (Luke Kirby). Oddly enough, Margot then winds up sitting next to Daniel on their flight home. An even bigger coincidence, they share a cab home from the airport and discover they live right down the street from each other. A match made in heaven, right? Perhaps if Margot wasn’t married.

Margot returns home to her husband of five years, Lou (Seth Rogen). When Lou isn’t working on his chicken-making cookbook, he’s endlessly affectionate with Margot. But still, Margot can’t quite shake Daniel and the fact that she can see him from her window on a daily basis doesn’t help.
