CAKE
2014, Cinelou Films, 91 min, USA, Dir: Daniel Barnz

Claire Simmons (Jennifer Aniston) lives in chronic pain - and none too pleasantly; her abrasive anger has driven virtually everyone out of her life except for housekeeper Silvana (Adriana Barraza). But the suicide of a fellow chronic-pain sufferer (Anna Kendrick) shakes Claire to the core, and in trying to understand the death of a woman she barely knew, she may finally come to grips with her own life.


TRUST ME
2013, Starz Digital Media, 90 min, USA, Dir: Clark Gregg

THE AVENGERS’ Clark Gregg directs and stars as former child actor Howard Holloway, who now represents young performers - at least the ones not stolen away by rival agent Aldo Shocklee (Sam Rockwell). Holloway thinks he’s hit the jackpot when an unsigned teen actress (Saxon Sharbino, in a breakout performance) about to land a major role enlists his services … but things aren’t always what they seem in Hollywood. This dark comedy boasts an outstanding ensemble cast, including Felicity Huffman, Allison Janney, William H. Macy, Amanda Peet and Molly Shannon.
