About the Movie
Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Charlie (Aaron Paul, TV’s “Breaking Bad” ) are a young married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of music, laughter and drinking...especially the drinking. When Kate’s drinking leads her to dangerous places and her job as a school teacher is put into jeopardy, she decides to join AA and get sober. With the help of her new friend and sponsor Jenny (Octavia Spencer, The Help), and the vice principal at her school, the awkward, but well intentioned, Mr. Davies, Kate takes steps toward improving her health and life. Sobriety isn't as easy as Kate had anticipated. Her new lifestyle brings to the surface a troubling relationship with her mother, facing the lies she's told her employer (Megan Mullally TV’s “Parks and Recreation” ) and calls into question whether or not her relationship with Charlie is built on love or just a boozy diversion from adulthood.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Winstead is very good in "Smashed," though she's saddled with a merely adequate co-starring performance.
Fresh: The act of going out there as an unknown and coming back a star is the time-honored showbiz fantasy, and if there's any justice that's about to come true for Mary Elizabeth Winstead on the basis of "Smashed."
Fresh: Winstead, a relative newcomer, handily carries this slender film.
Fresh: Smashed belongs to Winstead.
Nice little film!
The story revolves around a woman and her struggles with alcoholism. She makes an effort to stay sober while her husband doesn't seem to really care about her sobriety. Winstead's performance carries the film otherwise this film would fall flat.
Really good movie!
I really enjoyed this movie. I hadn't heard of it and rented it on a whim. It was superbly acted and I felt myself being very drawn into the story. I really cared about the characters. I would recommend it - definitely something "different" than your typical Hollywood dramas.
