The first official trailer of Cake, the upcoming drama movie directed by Daniel Barnz and starring Jennifer Aniston, has shown up online, watch it below:
“Claire Simmons (Jennifer Aniston) is in pain. Her physical pain is evident in the scars that line her body and the way she carries herself, wincing with each tentative step. She’s no good at hiding her emotional pain either. Blunt to the point of searing insult, Claire’s anger seethes out of her with nearly every interaction. She has driven away her husband, her friends — even her chronic-pain support group has kicked her out.
The only one left in Claire’s otherwise solitary existence is her housekeeper-cum-caretaker, Silvana (Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza), who barely tolerates her boss’ need for liquor and prescription pills. But the suicide of Nina (Academy Award nominee Anna Kendrick), one of Claire’s fellow chronic-pain group members, prompts another fixation. In pursuing questions about the death of a woman she barely knew, Claire explores the boundaries between life and death, abandonment and heartbreak, danger and salvation. As she inserts herself into the lives of Nina’s husband (Sam Worthington) and the son Nina left behind, Claire just might find salvation.”

My fellow chronic pain friends in a group that I belong to are looking forward to this movie! We applaud Jennifer Aniston for portraying the anger, depression and the betrayals that come with dealing with intense and unbearable daily pain! I can’t wait for the release!
Thank you for making this movie! Thank you Jennifer for taking on this incredible and controversial role. I wish you had not made her where she tries to drown herself in alcohol and pain bills because many of my friends are stronger than that…,however many are not and we loose friends every year because of it.
Thank you for making people talk about this like they did today on “ABC This Morning”.
I’m anxious to see the movie cake I need to look where it’s playing in my Roseville Michigan area zip code 48066
Can’t wait to see this, Jennifer Aniston is awesome and I understand depression
Hell yes!!! Such a dramatic role for the “sweet girl next door”. Jeniffer Aniston is one of the few BEST actresses that I care to watch. Such a versatile performance.
