Vancouver Film Festival
Just home from seeing the new Sarah Polley film, Take This Waltz. Michelle Williams is amazing as the confused and emotionally needy protagonist. Not a perfect film, but very beautiful and evocative. Maybe a chic flick, but a good one. Worth seeing for the hilarious scene of the aquacizes class in the local pool and the subsequent subtle revelation of the reality of aging women's bodies.
