I have friends who raved about Jennifer Aniston in CAKE, so I finally watched the screener I got for the awards season and have to say this is one depressing movie. Aniston does some serious acting work, and some of it is impressive some not, and there are other fine actors in it who do some good work in spots, but the writing is weak, the direction seems arbitrary. The best thing about this movie is Adriana Barraza who plays Aniston's character's maid. That's the performance that should have been noticed and even gotten some awards nominations.
