‘Cake’

JenniferAnistonCake_article_story_large

Jennifer Aniston’s run to the Oscar stage came up short, but she still establishes some dramatic cred carrying this feature.

The story of this one is a woman with a debilitating back injury, stuck in the mental place between pushing herself to full recovery or wallowing in depression.  Her depression in part centers on an obsession with a woman from her support group (played by Anna Kendrick); I’ll let you watch the film to understand the nature of that relationship.

Memorable turns as well from Sam Worthington and William H. Macy (who God bless him keeps nailing that emasculated guy role).  An interesting film to watch if you’re curious as to what direction Aniston may move into in the future.
