Role: Geraldine

Director / Writer: Sarah Polley

Other cast members: Seth Rogen, Michelle Williams

Synopsis: Michelle Williams plays twenty-eight-year-old Margot, happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), a good-natured cookbook author. But when Margot meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), a handsome artist that lives across the street, their mutual attraction is undeniable. Swelteringly hot, bright and colorful, Take This Waltz leads us, laughing, through the familiar, but uncharted question of what long-term relationships do to love, sex and our image of ourselves.

Comments: Widely talked about on the web for Sarah’s full-frontal nudity. Sarah fans know this as a milestone in which she skillfully show her acting chops.  All her scenes are “don’t miss” for fans.

    I recently watched “I Smile Back”. It is very powerful. I have never understood why films with an important message are so often set in an elegant, up scale place. My guess is that “just folks” can’t relate and much is wasted.
