Michelle Williams Falls For Neighbor in 'Take This Waltz,' Is This Another Oscar Worthy Performance?

One of the biggest questions for actors who are nominated for an Oscar is, "What's next." While some cash in their newly minted title as Academy Award nominee, others take a back seat and allow for a passion project to present itself to them.

In Take This Waltz, we see Michelle Williams, fresh off her Academy Award nomination for My Week With Marilyn playing a young woman whose marriage is jeopardized when she falls in love with her next door neighbor.

While a bit jarring at first, Seth Rogen plays Williams' husband and Luke Kirby as the next door neighbor. Sarah Silverman fills the best friend role in actress Sarah Polley's bittersweet romantic drama. Waltz marks a return to directing for Polley since 2006's stirring Away from Her, which earned a pair of Oscar nominations for screenplay and best actress.

Take This Waltz has been touring the film festival circuit, mainly in Canada and Spain, and will screen at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival before arriving On Demand on May 25 and receiving a limited theatrical run beginning June 29.

Judging from the trailer, do you think Williams gives another Oscar worthy performance?
