Audiences know Sarah Silverman as the fearless R-rated comedian who loves a good dirty joke, but that’s all about to change thanks to Adam Salky’s “I Smile Back.” The actress shocked audiences at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year with her breakthrough dramatic performance, and the film is bound to earn more positive notices at TIFF before opening in select theaters this October.

The official synopsis reads: “Laney is an attractive, intelligent suburban wife and devoted mother of two adorable children. She has the perfect husband who plays basketball with the kids in the driveway, a pristine house, and a shiny SUV for carting the children to their next activity. However, just beneath the façade lie depression and disillusionment that send her careening into a secret world of reckless compulsion. Only very real danger will force her to face the painful root of her destructiveness and its crumbling effect on those she loves.”

Josh Charles, Thomas Sadoski and Mia Barron also star in the drama. “I Smile Back” hits select theaters on October 23 via Broad Green Pictures.
