Movie Review: Take This Waltz

This movie stars Michelle Williams as a young wife named Margot who's married to the very adorable Lou played by always likeable Seth Rogan.  (side note: he's my newest celeb crush!) The movie begins with Margot on a working vacation, there she encounters a man at a tourist attraction, &again later on the plane when he happens to have the sit next to her.  They chit chat & decide to get a cab together, & during the ride home discover an attraction for each other, enough so that Margot confesses to Daniel at the end of the ride, That she's married,  to which he replies... "That's too bad, I live right here" just a few houses away from her own.  "Oh Shit!" says Margot.  The thing that is revealed is that Margot & Lou have a sweet, playful, seemingly happy marriage except on one front... they are in the "comfortable" stage.  Margot longs for more "excitement" thus fairly quickly begins having not so random encounters w/ Daniel.. for instance going to the grocery store at 5:30 am because that is when he leaves in the morning.  Margot & Daniel steal away moments, but Margot is trying hard to avoid the temptations.   But does she, & what consequences could that have.  The grass looks mighty green from the other side of the fence, but is it?  Next time you're looking for a good movie to watch, why not give it a try.  I highly recommend it!
