The career of romcom favourite Jennifer Aniston has had its highlights. This has clearly been one of them with her awards nominations proof that she can do seriocomic as well as hitting some notes of pathos when given the right material. A chronic pain sufferer who develops an obsession with the suicide of a fellow group member we are impressed by her orneriness and quips. Gradually the tragedy behind her back pain and scarred face is revealed against a plot of discovery and the range of worried people around her as she approaches some kind of horrible breakthrough. Patrick Tobin’s script is sharp and wise while Rachel Morrison’s photography gives us some very fine views of Los Angeles. Quietly impressive.
