Sarah Silverman Takes a Dark Turn in ‘I Smile Back’ First Trailer

“I’d love to smile like that again,” Sarah Silverman says in the chilling first trailer for her Sundance hit “I Smile Back.”

Silverman plays a depressed, self-destructive New Jersey housewife and mother of two in the rare dramatic turn.

“Rarely has a performer striven so concertedly to shed any trace of his/her comedy roots as Sarah Silverman does over the course of ‘I Smile Back,'” Variety‘s former chief film critic Scott Foundas wrote in his review.

Broad Green Pictures released the first trailer for the film on Friday — a day ahead of its screening at the Toronto Film Festival.

Josh Charles, Thomas Sadoski, Mia Barron, Terry Kinney and Chris Sarandon also star in the movie, directed by Adam Salky. It’s written by Amy Koppelman and Paige Dylan based on Koppelman’s book by the same name.

“I Smile Back” hits theaters on Oct. 23.
