More material culled the promo kits from the American Film Market.

Collider has compiled the latest battery of material from Sarah Polley's forthcoming "Take This Waltz." Starring Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen, Polley's film follows Margot, a 28-year-old woman who's been married to her husband Leo (Rogen) for five years. She meets a man named Seth on a business trip who turns out to live across the street from the couple and the two begin an awkward flirtation, which soon threatens to blossom into something more.

Comedienne Sarah Silverman also stars as Rogen's sister in the feature, though is curiously absent in any of the marketing collateral. We reviewed the script earlier this year and found it to be a charming and initially funny, honest and unflinching exploration of people in their late 20s; much the same thing "Away From Her" was for people in their 60s. No word on a potential release yet, though a Sundance premiere could be on the cards considering the current timeframe and the fact her debut directorial feature played there in 2007.

In the director's notes to the film, it's mentioned that the "soundtrack will be alive and pervasive and feature legendary songs by Leonard Cohen as well as the contemporary music of many emerging independent bands" which thrills us to no end. Cohen providing the backdrop to the potential romantic and domestic strife seems perfectly fitting. And of course, "Talk This Waltz" just happens to also be a song by Cohen, so the pairing makes perfect sense. You can check out the official synopsis and a number of stills after the jump:

When Margot, 28, meets Daniel, their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction: she is happily married to Lou, a celebrated 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. Margot finally gives in to desire and in doing so, discovers some unsettling truths about herself. 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.
