The storyline is not just a very real story of 24/7 pain. It also tells us of the outrageous pain that more people live with than we know, or care to know about.
Jennifer went far beyond her usual outstanding job, as did all the actors and crew in Cake. In is interesting to note, how Jennifer actually pulled in and made the viewers of the movie part of it.
Doing that requires a skill that not many process today. It's called creating a "theater of the mind" and Jennifer out did herself in this one...
Well done guys.
Well done indeed.
