Oh my God. This movie proved that Jennifer Aniston is Superwoman. I can not express in words how absolutely riveting her performance was. My heart was ripped from my chest and thrown on the ground only to have a double-decker bus come by and run over. Then it backed up and ran over it again. It left a feeling of complete and utter despair.
This is not a movie for anyone battling depression. It would leave you in a bad way. I’m an incredibly happy person and I wasn’t able to shake the sadness for days. The day I saw this was my granddaughter’s second birthday. When I got home we gave her a yummy cake and started singing Happy Birthday. The tears that came to my eyes were due to the symbolic meaning of Cake from the movie.
I hope Jennifer lands every award possible for this performance. She rightfully deserves it. It is the best movie I have ever seen that I wish I could un-see.
