In ‘Cake’, Jennifer Aniston plays Claire Simmons, who suffers a loss of a friend in her support group. She attempts to answer very difficult questions surrounding the topic of suicide.
From the trailer below, we see a Jennifer Aniston film performance that we’ve never really seen before – the shear depth and range of her role takes her acting skills to a completely different level than the romantic comedies we normally see Aniston cast in. The girl we were introduced to as Rachel Green back in 1994, on the hit TV sitcom Friends, has now become a dramatic actress with “Cake” to prove it.
For her work in “Cake”, Aniston has been nominated by the Golden Globes for Best Performance in a Motion Picture. She’s also landed an Outstanding Performance by a Female in a Leading Role nomination from the Screen Actors’ Guild Awards. And based off of this trailer, Aniston’s name may be added to the Academy Award Best Actress list as the current darkhorse.
Check out the trailer and see a bold, riveting performance by Aniston. “Cake” is directed by Daniel Barnz (“Won’t Back Down”, 2012) and co-stars Anna Kendrick (“Pitch Perfect 2”, 2015).
“Cake” hits theaters on January 23rd.
