Cake stars Jennifer Aniston as Claire Bennett. From the get-go we know Claire is in physical and emotional pain. She is angry and has driven away her husband, her friends — even her chronic-pain support group has kicked her out.
The only one left is Silvana (Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza), who barely tolerates her boss’ need for liquor and prescription pills. But the suicide of Nina (Academy Award nominee Anna Kendrick), one of Claire’s fellow chronic-pain group members, prompts another fixation. In pursuing questions about the death of a woman she barely knew, Claire explores the boundaries between life and death, abandonment and heartbreak, danger and salvation. Clare inserts herself into the lives of Nina’s husband (Sam Worthington).
Can we talk about Claire’s house? Lisa Son is the set designer. As much as I tried, I couldn’t find any kind of scoop on the mid century 1970’s style ranch. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
