Cake ★★★

Watching this the same day as Tully was a strange move, completely unintentional. They’re not really similar, but the mature women at their centers near similarities. 

Cake is a solid character study, but one that leads us on a road to nearly nowhere. It’s a little inconsistent in how it handles its tone, but it has a decent story to tell. It lands somewhere around average, but that’s not for a lack of trying.
