About the Movie
CAKE takes us into the darkly funny world of Claire Bennett (Jennifer Aniston) who initiates a dubious relationship with a widower (Sam Worthington) while confronting fantastical hallucinations of his dead wife (Anna Kendrick). With her feisty housekeeper cum caretaker (Adriana Barraza) ever at her side, Claire searches for human connection and self-forgiveness in this tale of personal redemption.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The movie hits so many familiar beats that it's impossible not to see what's next. It does what you expect at almost every turn ...
Rotten: The slack and purposeless direction leaves the entire cast emoting in a void.
Fresh: Whether or not Aniston ever gets another role like this one, I have a hard time imagining anyone else in it -- and that's the sign of a genuine actor.
Fresh: Jennifer Aniston burrows into Claire's walking-wounded gait and eclipsed mood.
A brilliant overlooked film in many ways. Hands down Jennifer Aniston should have been nominated for an Oscar and should have won it; as well as her costar Adriana Barraza should have been up for every award. Watch it twice.
Jennifer Aniston really deserved more recognition for her brilliant portrayal as a women paralyzed with genuine heartbreak and subsequent addition. A truly genuine performance - well f*cking done, Jen!

I really enjoyed this movie! It was refreshing to see actresses out of their comfort zone(Jennifer Anniston was great it this out of the ordinary role)
Not to mention the cast was good
