Cake Q&A with Screenwriter Patrick Tobin and Director Daniel Barnz

In this Orange County Film Society Q&A, Screenwriter Patrick Tobin and Director Daniel Barnz talk about their recent collaboration, Cake. They discuss how Barnz discovered Tobin’s script while judging a screenplay competition, the inspiration for the screenplay, and how Jennifer Aniston was able to bring Claire from the script to the screen.

In Cake, the acerbic, hilarious Claire Simmons becomes fascinated by the suicide of a woman in her chronic pain support group. As she uncovers the details of Nina’s suicide and develops a poignant relationship with Nina’s husband, she also grapples with her own, very raw personal tragedy.
