It's been a long time coming, but this summer finally sees the theatrical release of Canadian actress-writer-director Sarah Polley's sophomore effort behind the camera, with the romantic drama "Take This Waltz." There's no lack of star power featured in Polley's film, with Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen leading the cast. Now a new poster and a couple of new images have been unveiled to help the film find an audience.

"Take This Waltz" centers a young couple (Williams, Rogen) who struggle with monogamy and fidelity, as the former is torn between her husband and a new man. Up and comer Luke Kirby co-stars as the dude who catches Williams' eye with comedienne Sarah Silverman also on board in a provocative role as Rogen's sister.

Our TIFF review described the movie as "a modernist version of a late '60s or early '70s relationship film" that delivers "a knockout punch" with another review adding that the film "deals with profound emotion. Just when we feel our hearts are breaking, we will feel the release of a laugh...it is never overly weighted on the side of sadness, but rather oscillates wildly between moments of joy, levity, and difficult emotion." 

"Take This Waltz" will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival before landing in theaters on June 19th. If you needed any more convincing, look no further than the film's promising trailer. [Facebook]
