THE ROMANTIC comedy drama Take This Waltz (15) starring Michelle Williams will be screened at the Splendid Cinema this Sunday (Feb 10).

The film by Canadian actor, writer, and director Sarah Polley is the follow up to her internationally acclaimed debut, Away from Her (2006).

It tells the story of Margot (Williams), a 28-year-old freelance writer, who finds herself struggling to find happiness in a beautiful, but routine, marriage with Lou (Seth Rogen).

During a work trip to Nova Scotia, she meets a handsome young man named Daniel (Luke Kirby) and the chemistry the two obviously share complicates Margot’s life.

Polley’s film is a visual treat for the audience, capturing the story of the restless human struggle in a romantic looking Toronto and its colourful neighbourhoods.

Empire magazine’s David Hughes called Take This Waltz “a masterfully painted portrait of an ordinary marriage under threat, dominated by a central performance of exquisite subtlety and observation.”

Nominated for several Genie awards - the Canadian Oscars - including a Best Actress nomination for Williams, Take This Waltz is a romantic fairytale of a film for anyone who has ever fallen in love.

Worcester’s only independent cinema will also be screening I would... - a short film by John Blox, before Take this Waltz as part of the Splendid Cinema’s initiative supporting local filmmakers.

The screening starts at Worcester Arts Workshop, 21 Sansome Street at 6.30pm with the box office open from 6pm. Tickets are £5 in advance or on the door with Café Bliss open for a pre-show treat.

For more information on any of the independent cinema’s screenings contact Mikel Koven at splendidcinema@live.co.uk.
