While Jennifer Aniston goes for laughs again in HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 opening today, it’s her dramatic transformation in CAKE that’s getting buzz. Director Daniel Barnz’s (BEASTLY) upcoming film stars Aniston as a woman who becomes fascinated by the suicide of a member of her chronic pain support group. After looking into the woman’s life (boredom I guess) she develops a relationship with her widower. Now that’s a pretty dark turn of events for a movie with such a delicious name.

I’ve always considered Aniston a good comedic actress; we have seen hints of her dramatic side in films like DERAILED (2005) and THE GOOD GIRL (2002) so it’s a welcoming surprise to see her try something different after so long. There is obviously some Oscar buzz as she isn’t’ wearing as much makeup after all. I kid, she looks to have brought a lot to the role and it looks to be worth checking out.

The film also stars Anna Kendrick, Sam Worthington, Chris Messina, Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.  

CAKE opens in limited release in December 2014 followed by an expansion in January 2015.
