So, Michelle Williams has been blowing it up big time over the past few years, just churning movies out like butter, and the buck did not stop with Blue Valentine. Her latest project? A movie called Take This Waltz, which, according to IMDB (’cause I hadn’t heard of it ’til I saw the behind-the-scenes stills) is supposed to be a “funny, bittersweet and heart-wrenching story about a woman struggling to choose between two different types of love.”
I love independent films, and moreover, I’ve been a big fan of ‘major’ celebrities like Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling (Lars and the Real Girl? Awesome.) doing a lot of underground movies over the past few years. It’s bringing cinema back as an art, not just as, “Hey, let’s bring Jennifer Aniston or Cameron Diaz into some random movie plot and make it a zany romantic comedy, OK, but a different zany romantic comedy, not the same old-same old that we’ve seen sixty-five-thousand times already.” Oh, wait. Dammit.
Yeah, and in case you couldn’t tell from the photos, Sarah Silverman’s in the movie, too. And Seth Rogen, though he’s actually not pictured. But I could really give a crap less about either of them, anyway.
