The last trailer for Take This Waltz was a small masterpiece, dominated mostly by a single monologue from star Michelle Williams that served as a perfect metaphor for the dilemma her character found herself in: Stay with her husband (Seth Rogen), or indulge in an affair with a handsome stranger (Luke Kirby, of HBO’s Tell Me You Love Me).

The new trailer spells out that plot more explicitly, but it still has its charms. Director Sarah Polley’s vibrant visual style is still readily apparent. And I especially like the notion that getting a dog isn’t a starter for a kid, but a starter for a cow. Check it out below:
