Reviewer Rating Review
Minnesota Man80 - More of a pie person, but this Cake is a filling slice.

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine80 - In terms of the narrative of Cake, the "ghost of Nina" may not be necessary, however, I liked their somewhat antagonistic exchanges filled with sarcastic honesty. Claire also develops a strange relationship with Nina's widowed husband, Roy (Sam Worthington). Roy is so broken by his wife abandoning both he and their son, that he actually welcomes Claire's uncommon interruption into their lives.

Bryan Lienesch80 - It's a story about empathy. About finding the impossible feelings you feel in another.
David Baruffi80 - The review is incomplete.
