Sam Worthington, Anna Kendrick, Chris Messina, Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy. Britt Robertson, Lucy Walters, Camille Mana, Manuel Garcia Rulfo and Marianne Jean-Baptiste will join Jennifer Aniston in Daniel Barnz’s indie movie “Cake”.
Based on Patrick Tobin’s script, Aniston plays an acerbic woman fascinated by the suicide of Nina (Kendrick), a woman in her chronic pain support group.
As she uncovers details of the suicide, she develops a poignant relationship with Nina’s husband (Worthington) and grapples with her own very raw personal tragedy.
Messina plays Aniston’s still caring ex-husband, Huffman is the support group’s facilitator, Mana is a nurse with little patience. The ghost of Kendrick’s character also appears to taunt Aniston’s character.
