Michelle recently appeared on CBS This Morning to promote Take This Waltz. Here is a video of the interview.
Michelle Talks “Take This Waltz”, “Dawson’s Creek”, & “Cougar Town”
I found “Take this Waltz” more depressing than “Blue Valentine.”
Seth Rogen’s character, Lou, seems like a really nice guy. The relationship between Margot and Lou felt very relatable.
Yeah, it doesn’t have the kind of fireworks of “Blue Valentine.” It’s more subtle than that. I kind of thought of Margot as sleepwalking; she’s a little sleepy. She could stay with her husband and have a perfectly decent life — but with this nagging feeling of, “Did I miss something?” Where I think for Cindy and Dean in “Blue Valentine,” the distance between them was so obvious you couldn’t ignore it. But, I think this is the kind of thing you can ignore — for the sake of safety or security. You’re not hurting anyone. So, in a way, I don’t know if it’s sadder or not, but I found it more unnerving.
The dinner scene is sad. When a married couple realizes that they have nothing to talk about.
Yeah, you realize that you have nothing to say to the person. You can love somebody so much and want what’s best for them and care about them so deeply, but, somehow, it doesn’t work. It’s not enough. Then, I think, the bigger question of the movie — and what Sarah was interested in and what I was interested in — is that feeling of restlessness. Is that what it feels like to be alive? Or is that what it feels like to be in the wrong relationship? And what do you do with this restlessness? Do you look outside of yourself? Or is it something that’s your own journey? I read this quote when I was making the movie, it’s a Buddhist quote, “Emptiness is the track that a centered person walks on.” And that’s a great kind of idea to hang on to, but a hard one to practice. The other thing I thought was how romantic love kind of replaces spiritual love these days. Because a relationship to God or church or something is lost. And in its place is romance.

“Take This Waltz” Picked Up By Magnolia
When Take This Waltz premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last month, it was easy to lump it in with all the other Oscar hopefuls at the festival. After all, Sarah Polley’s debut film Away From Her earned Julie Christie a Best Actress nomination (and if you ask some people, a near-win), and Take This Waltz stars Michelle Williams, an actress who pretty much does no wrong. But once the film actually premiered, it became clear it was something different, a pricklier and much more polarizing movie, both passionate in telling its sotry and a little hard to grasp for some people.
Take This Waltz, it became clear, was not your typical fall release, but luckily its found a distributor that knows that. Magnolia Pictures announced today that they’ve picked the film up for a release early next summer, both theatrically and on-demand. They also plan to bring the film to several festivals, which means Sundance goers might be able to catch it.
