So terrible. I had to turn it off for fear of ruining a perfectly good Leonard Cohen song by associating it in my mind with a bad sex scene.

2.5 stars; slow as molasses, subtle like in barely there. The actors were good but, I felt like 50 yrs must have gone by. I skipped forward a lot after awhile but, I did get the ending.

You can't fit the story or Williams' character in a box because they're shaped like nothing else out there.

Beautiful cinematography. A slow paced film that shows the subtle way a relationship unravels. Michelle Williams is amazing.

Great work, as ever, by Sarah Polley. "Take This Waltz" is a beautifully realized piece of filmmaking that asks and asks again the question that we all (especially the happiest of us) carry around all our lives: did we make the right choices, did we miss connections with other people, with ...Read more

So, so true. I'm 70 years old, and dealing with relationship complexities that I thought were long gone in my life.
