Take This Waltz, the upcoming indie romance from Canadian star Sarah Polley, features Michelle Williams as Margot, a young writer who is happily married to her sweet, caring husband Lou (played by Seth Rogen). Everything seems to be going well for the affectionate couple, until Margot meets Daniel (Luke Kirby) on a weekend business trip. He’s new, he’s passionate and most incredibly, he just happens to be Lou and Margot’s next-door neighbor. Now Margot must return home to her seemingly-loving marriage and confront her complicated feelings regarding both men.
Starring in a bittersweet romance, about troubled relationships, is not a challenge for Williams, who earned acclaim in Blue Valentine and Brokeback Mountain. But the heart-break of Waltz is a new acting test for Rogen, the big-screen comedian of Knocked Up and Superbad.
In this exclusive preview clip, we see how close Lou is to losing Margot, without even realizing it. He’s been spending the entire summer, slaving over a hot stove, preparing chicken recipes for his upcoming cookbook; from his perspective, everything from simple affection to small bickering seems normal for a healthy marriage. But his wife needs to see something new and passionate in him, to get her mind off of the hunky, soulful artist who lives across the street.
