Sarah Silverman is ready to tackle the dramatic world, and she’s putting a smile on for the venture. Broad Green Pictures has acquired the North American rights to the Adam Salky-directed “I Smile Back,” based on the novel by Amy Koppelman. 

In “I Smile Back,” Silverman plays Laney, a woman who seems to have the perfect life: A loving husband, kids she cares for, and a gorgeous home. Looks can be deceiving though, and Laney spirals down a path of self-destruction as she indulges and drugs and sex. Can she find forgiveness?

“Sarah’s raw and vulnerable performance will astonish audiences and define her as an incredible dramatic talent,” said Gabriel Hammond, CEO of BGP, and Daniel Hammond, BGP Chief Creative Officer. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to give “I Smile Back” the platform to impact audiences the same way it did us.”

“I Smile Back” also stars Josh Charles, Thomas Sadoski, Mia Barron, Terry Kinney and Chris Sarandon. No release date has yet been announced.
