One film that is quietly winning over the members of the Playlist as we all catch up with it is Sarah Polley's romantic drama "Take This Waltz." It already won over our man at TIFF James Rocchi who called it "a modernist version of a late '60s or early '70s relationship film" that delivers "a knockout punch." And now, a new trailer has arrived offering another strong and compelling look at the film.

One film that is quietly winning over the members of the Playlist as we all catch up with it is Sarah Polley's romantic drama "Take This Waltz." It already won over our man at TIFF James Rocchi who called it "a modernist version of a late '60s or early '70s relationship film" that delivers "a knockout punch." And now, a new trailer has arrived offering another strong and compelling look at the film.

The film stars Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen as a young couple who struggle with monogamy and fidelity, as the former is torn between her husband and a new man played by Luke Kirby. Shot and set in Polley's native Toronto, you can feel her familiarity on her home turf which gives the film a particularly personalized feel. And while we have a few minor quibbles overall, the gorgeous lensing by cinematographer Luc Montpellier will hopefully put him on a broader radar (he's one to keep an eye on). Boasting a great soundtrack (the film is named after a Leonard Cohen song, who also has a few tunes in the movie), the trailer opens with Corinna Rose and the Rusty Horse Band's "Green Mountain State" and closes with Jason Collet's "Rave On Sad Songs."

"Take This Waltz" will play the Tribeca Film Festival later this month, before opening on June 29th. Watch below.
