The trailer for the dark comedy shows plenty of anger and frustration as Aniston’s character pops pain pills and drives away her husband, friends and chronic pain support group.
It’s the first film from Cinelou, which is planning an awards qualifying run in December, followed by a wide release in January.
“Cake” premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Daniel Barnz directed the Black List script by Patrick Tobin. Aniston stars as an acerbic woman who becomes fascinated by the suicide of another woman, played by Anna Kendrick, in her chronic pain support group.
“Cake” also stars Adriana Barraza, Mamie Gummer, Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy and Sam Worthington.
