And Sarah’s on to the next city promoting I Smile Back, this time at the Chicago International Film Festival. Michael Phillips has some spiffy complimentary wording about Sarah’s performance in this announcement from today’s Chicago Tribune.
The best comics come equipped with dramatic instincts to die for, and in this Sundance-launched drama, Sarah Silverman tears into a tough, astringent role with a knack for knowing how to hold back. Laney is a mother of two, and the wife of a loving if increasingly distant husband (Josh Charles). She’s also a multidirectional addict, whose life unravels in director Adam Salky’s debut. “I Smile Back” opens commercially Oct. 30; Silverman will appear Friday [today] at the Chicago International Film Festival screening.
