TIFF Talk 2015: Lani, "I Smile Back"
Name: Lani, Toronto
The Film: I Smile Back (USA)
What's it about?
The film is a character study of one woman's (Sarah Silverman) struggle with mental illness and addiction.
Did you like it?
It was really good. It's very heavy and hard to watch, but I think it's an important film to see. It definitely resonated with me because I had some family members go through similar things. It helped me understand what they might have endured. Sarah Silverman was amazing. She really embodied the character. This was a different role for her. She usually does comedy. Audiences will be surprised by her dramatic performance. I didn't think the film was going to be as gripping as it was.
