Because...she looks kinda amazing in it. I SMILE BACK is a dramatic film for her, one in which she also plays a lead role and seemingly carries. Which would have ordinarily worried me (because since when is Silverman a "serious" actress?), but guys, this looks like it might actually be good.
Here's the lowdown on the film:
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, just 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.
