Even before Take This Waltz – out in theaters June 29 and available through Video On Demand May 25 — was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival in September of last year, a lot was made of a full-frontal nude scene featuring Sarah Silverman.
“The movie, I think, is gonna be great because [writer/director] Sarah Polley is incredible, but my body? In all honesty, I would say it’s a lot closer to Kathy Bates in About Schmidt than, like, Julianne Moore in Short Cuts,” Silverman told Vulture in November of 2010. “I am begging you to lower your expectations!”
After watching the first full-length trailer for the movie, we have to say, it looks pretty great. Note: It is not a comedy, despite Silverman and Seth Rogen’s presence. And the nude scene, according to an insider who recently screened Take This Waltz, is not at all what most people would consider erotic.
“It’s a pretty serious flick about a woman (Williams) in an unfulfillin marriage to a cookbook author (Rogen). Silverman plays Seth’s sister Geraldine, who’s a recovering alcoholic,” explains the insider. “In one scene, following a water aerobics class, Michelle and Sarah’s characters take a shower in the locker room with another friend. It’s not exactly sexy — the camera repeatedly cuts to a few larger, elderly women, who are also showering naked. There’s a great deal of full-frontal nudity, from both Sarah and Michelle.”
Check out the trailer below, which contains no nudity and is completely safe for work.
