First Trailer for Sarah Silverman's Brutal Drug Drama 'I Smile Back'
"Don't you want to be happy?" Broad Green Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for I Smile Back, a very emotional drug drama starring Sarah Silverman. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to positive reviews, as it's about the struggles of an addicted mother and how much she tries to be clean, but can't escape the depression. The cast includes Josh Charles, Thomas Sadoski, Mia Barron and Skylar Gaertner. It's a brutal film because as much as you hope, and really want, her to get better, she just keeps abusing herself and it's so painful to watch, but so potent in telling the story of this kind of person (who still deserves to be loved). This is also one of Sarah Silverman's best performances to date. Take a look below.
Here's the first official trailer for Adam Salky's I Smile Back, direct from YouTube:
Laney is an attractive, intelligent suburban wife and devoted mother of two adorable children. She has the perfect husband who plays basketball with the kids in the driveway, a pristine house, and a shiny SUV for carting the children to their next activity. However, beneath the façade lie depression and disillusionment that send her careening into a secret world of reckless compulsion. Only very real danger will force her to face the painful root of her destructiveness and its crumbling effect on those she loves. I Smile Back is directed by Adam Salky (of Dare), from a script by Amy Koppleman & Paige Dylan. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Broad Green Pictures will release I Smile Back in theaters this October 23rd.
