Flower, floral, flora

So I finally got around to seeing Sarah Polley’s sophomore directorial effort in Take This Waltz, which she also wrote. Having seen her first film, Away From Her, I think Polley is an extraordinarily talented director who creates everything from subtlety. Take This Waltz is a meditation on married life, desire, and love; however, like Michelle Williams’ other movie, Blue Valentine, it is very raw and realistic. This is what separates the film apart from other movies about faithfulness: it’s very real, and so possible that it hits very hard. This is where Williams’ incredible talent is on display; she’s entirely fearless in playing Margot who cannot control yet cannot decide what to do in an extremely realistic way. I have an affinity for these kinds of movies where the verisimilitude is often unbearable.

Of course, the other movie we’re all dying to see is The Dark Knight. I probably won’t see it for a couple more weeks until the craziness dies down a little. I also want to see Beasts of the Southern Wild before that exits all the theatres and hopefully Macbeth at our annual Shakespeare theatre company, Bard on the Beach.
