Sarah Polley is such an inspiration to me as a writer, even more so since I saw “Take This Waltz,” which she wrote and directed. The story and characters are original and complex; the last 30 minutes of the movie are particularly thought-provoking as it moves beyond where most end. Here’s one of my favorite Sarah Polley quotes from a recent Q&A:
“…putting an original story out into the world is terrifying and thrilling. You can’t anticipate how people will respond.”
