Let Williams lead you on a merry dance. US, 105 min
If you don’t already rate Michelle Williams as one of the best actors around, you must not get to the cinema very often. Why not make a change for the better, and check out her extraordinary work in an excellent new film? Williams hits a new peak in this unorthodox, yet wildly engrossing hybrid of comedy and drama from Canadian writer-director Sarah Polley. A slyly shape-changing story centres on a distracted young wife (Williams) who becomes obsessed with a single man who lives down the street. As funny as it is moving, and some wholly unexpected twists as well. Co-stars Seth Rogen, Sarah Silverman.
