I have to admit I didn't know much of anything about this story before checking it out. All I knew is that Jennifer Aniston went without make up for the role. I find her to be quite beautiful now rather than when she was young. Indeed she is still quite gorgeous to look at without makeup in my opinion. This is by far her best role and it seems to be extremely against type. The real scene stealer though is Adriana Barraza. There are few quite recognizable faces and names here some of which have surprisingly small amounts of screen time. It does drag on a little bit though. I kept sitting and wondering why the hell it was titled Cake until closer to the end. I thought the ending was a nice icing to the cake that is the film. There were several well done scenes that I really enjoyed throughout. I think it's worth checking out particularly if you are a big Jennifer Aniston fan.
