The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the critically-acclaimed "Take This Waltz" on Tuesday, Aug. 21, as part of the festival's monthly Tuesday Cinema Series. There will be two screenings of the film at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Harkins Sedona Six Theatres.

Three-time Academy Award-nominee Michelle Williams ("My Week With Marilyn") heads an all-star ensemble cast including Luke Kirby, Seth Rogen and Emmy-nominee Sarah Silverman. "Take This Waltz" was written and directed by Academy Award-nominee Sarah Polley who was nominated for an Oscar for Best Screenplay for "Away From Her" which was featured - and won awards - at the Sedona International Film Festival in 2006.

Whereas Polley's feature film directorial debut, "Away From Her," was the tender story of a couple in the winter of their married life, "Take This Waltz" follows a younger couple, married for only a few years, moving from the springtime of their romance, settling into what should be a warm, loving life together.

When Margot (Michelle Williams) meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction; she is happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), a cookbook writer.

When Margot learns that Daniel lives across the street from them, the certainty about her domestic life shatters. She and Daniel steal moments throughout the steaming Toronto summer, their eroticism heightened by their restraint.

Swelteringly hot, bright and colorful like a bowl of fruit, "Take This Waltz" leads us, laughing, through the familiar, but uncharted question of what long-term relationships do to love, sex and our images of ourselves.

Critics are raving about "Take This Waltz". "A wonderful movie! Honest, sure-footed and emotionally generous, it's full of music, color and warmth. Michelle Williams is one of the bravest and smartest actresses working today!" said A.O. Scott of the New York Times.

Justin Chang from Variety Magazine calls the film "Flat-out sexy! An intelligent, perceptive drama with superb performances by Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen, in a wonderfully affectionate, possibly career-best turn."

The monthly cinema series is made possible by a grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts and National Endowment for the Arts, the Sedona Community Foundation and the City of Sedona.

Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members, and will be available starting at 3 p.m. that day in the Harkins lobby. Members can purchase tickets in advance at the Sedona International Film Festival office, 2030 W. 89A, Suite A3, or by calling 282-1177. For more information, visit: www.SedonaFilmFestival.com.
