TIFF Pick of the Day: September 13, 2014

Pick: Cake
Directed by: Daniel Barnz
Showtimes: 12 p.m at Princess of Wales

Cake tells the story of what happens when a woman named Claire (Jennifer Aniston) in a support group for chronic-pain ends up inspecting the suicide of another group member (Anna Kendrick). The investigation brings Claire into an unlikely relationship with the husband of the deceased woman (Sam Worthington). William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman also star in the drama.

Why we chose Cake: This is your last chance to catch Jennifer Aniston in what may be the most dramatic role of her career. In addition to a cast of so many talented favourites like Macy and Kendrick, this story offers an insight on finding relationships both friendly and romantic in the most unlikely of places. Aniston also executively produced the profound film that touches on heartbreak, loss, and moving forward.
