Jennifer Aniston earned some of the best reviews of her career at the Toronto International Film Festival over a month ago for her raw performance in Daniel Barnz’s dark comedy “Cake.” The film stars the “Friends” actress as Claire Simmons, a heavily scarred woman suffering from chronic pain and coping with a recent tragedy by shutting everyone close to her out of her life.
In an exclusive new clip from the film, courtesy of IMBD, a very low-key Aniston bestows co-star Felicity Huffman with an alcoholic gift. Anyone with fond memories of the dolled up, attention-grabbing Aniston will surely get a run for their money in what looks like the most subdued and lived-in performance of the actress’ career thus far.
“Cake” also stars Anna Kendrick, William H. Macy, Sam Worthington, Adriana Barraza and Chris Messina. Cinelou Releasing will give “Cake” a one-week qualifying run in December, followed by an expansion in January. Watch the clip below:
