When Margot (Michelle Williams), 28, meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction; she is happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), a 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. 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.

Watch Why First And Final Frames Are So Important In Epic Movie Mash-Up
2012 was a really, really hard year to sum up in list form, and a top 20 would really be more appropriate to reflect the astonishing variety of blockbusters, out-of-nowhere successes and totally tiny arthouse stuff that grabbed me this year. A lot of these movies snuck up on me, only revealing their brilliance long after I'd written a review or thought I'd forgotten about it. Plenty of those not on this list did the opposite, making an amazing first impression and fading so quickly
We’re gearing up for the fall film season, when studios stockpile most of their possible awards contenders. The last few months of 2012 should be crowded with valuable viewing opportunities, so we wanted to take a moment and reflect on the best films we’ve seen so far this year. Hopefully, we’ll spotlight a film you haven’t seen yet, and, if so, inspire you to go hunt it down as soon as you can.
I'm head over heels for this movie, and have a hard time understanding the negative reaction that a fair number of critics had in Toronto. But come on, when something is that polarizing, aren't you pretty much commanded to see it for yourself? Take This Waltz will play at the Tribeca Film Festival this month, and it opens in limited release June 29.

Take This Waltz Trailer: You Really Have To See This Divisive Romance For Yourself
In 2011 Seth Rogen's career took a major step forward. While the actor came up doing raunchy, R-rated comedies, he switched things up with Jonathan Levine's 50/50, which he not only co-starred in but also produced. It was a change of pace for Rogen, not only in that it was a supporting role, but in that it was much more dramatic and heartfelt than his previous work.

Michelle Williams And Seth Rogen's Take This Waltz Picked Up By Magnolia
I spent Sunday away from the video blogs, not because it was a day of rest but the opposite, crammed with six interviews and three movie screenings. After all, movie news in the real world was slow and I had nothing better to do but cram in as much Toronto Film Festival as possible. But today I'm back with a video to sum up three of the more interesting movies I've seen in the meantime

Toronto Film Festival Video Blog #4: Comic Con, Take This Waltz And Your Sister's Sister Reviewed
Take This Waltz demands that you live inside it, with its languid pace and candy colors and heroine who can't help but make a lot of infuriatingly bad decisions. It's not a hard choice to go along with it, but it is a choice-- I was surprised to see any negative reactions after the screening to a film I loved so fiercely
