Take This Waltz (film)

Take This Waltz is a 2011 drama film. The film centers on Margot, a 28yearold freelance writer who lives in a charming house on a leafy street in Torontos Little Portugal neighbourhood, as she struggles with and examines her feelings for Lou, her husband of five years, while exploring a new relationship with Daniel, an artist and rickshaw driver who lives across the street.

Margot, a freelance writer, meets Daniel, an artist and rickshaw operator, while on a business trip, and although they immediately share some chemistry, she reveals to him that she is married. However, it turns out that Daniel is living across the street from Margot and her husband Lou in Toronto. Although Lou and Margot appear happy together, it becomes clear that Margot is not completely satisfied with her marriage, possibly aggravated by encountering Daniel. As the film progresses Margot and Daniel interact more and more until she ultimately leaves her husband to be with him. Lou is saddened, yet understanding. The audience is then shown a montage of Margots new life with Daniel, including several brief sex scenes, though it is clear that she begins to regret leaving her husband. Geraldine, Lous sister and a recovering alcoholic, confronts Margot while drunk and tells her that she should have just accepted that life has gaps and that changing relationships was not the answer.Take This Waltz had its world premiere on September 11, 2011 at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film then played at the 31st annual Atlantic Film Festival and the 59th annual San Sebastin International Film Festival. At the end of September, Take This Waltz was shown at the 25th Edmonton International Film Festival and the Vancouver International Film Festivals. The film closed the Calgary International Film Festival and the Cinfest Sudbury International Film Festival. In April 2012, Take This Waltz was shown at the Tribeca Film Festival.
