Margot (Michelle Williams), 28, is happily married to cookbook author Lou (Seth Rogen). Or so she thinks. Until she meets Daniel, her attentive neighbour on a plane – and suddenly she no longer knows what she thinks or feels. When it turns out that the two live quite close to each other in Toronto, they start meeting regularly, stealing moments of everyday life to share. Soon Margot is faced with the question: should she hang on to the security of what she knows or give in to the allure of the new? Take This Waltz is a charming bitter-sweet comedy with a fresh look at an age-old problem – whether and how a relationship can be maintained over time.
