Shining Clip from Sarah Polley's 'Take This Waltz'

Fantastic stuff. Luke Kirby and Michelle Williams deliver a live-wire performance in a demanding scene -- like something out of a theater workshop (there isn't any dialogue and they convey the most subtle shifts).

Great arc: From them forcing themselves to enjoy the ride to be polite, to the swaying (everyone in the audience will want them to kiss), to her really getting off on the music and being with him, to the comical return to reality when the lights go up and the music stops.

Superbly executed. What surely looked dumb on the page springs to life under Polley's direction. 'Take This Waltz' is must-see. The reason a lot of us go to the movies.
