Following its debut this fall at the Toronto International Film Festival, Cinelou Releasing has debuted the first trailer for their indie drama Cake, starring Jennifer Aniston. William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman also star in this highly anticipated drama from director Daniel Barnz. No release date has been given at this time, but be sure to check back for more updates.
While struggling with her own trauma, Claire Simmons (Jennifer Aniston), a woman in a chronic-pain support group, begins to investigate the suicide of a fellow group member, Nina (Anna Kendrick). They barely knew one another when Nina was alive, but as Nina keeps appearing in Claire's dreams and Percocet-fuelled hallucinations, Claire becomes consumed with curiosity about her death. How did Nina know she was ready to die? What was she thinking in her final moments?
These questions give Claire a new-found - if slightly disturbing - sense of purpose, and with the compassionate and refreshingly candid Silvana (Adriana Barraza) in tow, she unapologetically inserts herself into the lives of the husband (Sam Worthington) and son Nina left behind. But her search for answers will yield wholly unexpected results. Check out the first footage from Cake below.
