Sarah Polley's follow up to 2006's "Away from Her"--which earned two Oscar nominations, for Julie Christie's acting and Polley's adapted screenplay-- is almost here. "Take This Waltz," starring Michelle Williams, Luke Kirby, Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman, has a new trailer that reveals more than the first one. The deglamorized Williams will be the main draw when the film hits VOD May 25 and theaters June 29. "Take This Waltz," which debuted in Toronto, ranks at 80% on the Tomatometer; ThePlaylist writes that it has "edges sharp enough to stab."
