SMASHED is an upcoming indie drama film directed by James Ponsoldt (Off the Black). He wrote the script with Susan Burke, who drew from her own experiences as a former alcoholic. The film starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) as a married couple who are brought together by booze. Things get complicated when Winstead’s character decides she wants to be sober.
The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to positive reviews, also featuring the promising supporting cast includes Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Megan Mullaly (Will & Grace), Mary Kay Place, and Oscar winner Octavia Spencer (The Help).
Kate (Winstead) and Charlie (Paul) like to have a good time. Their marriage thrives on a shared fondness for music, laughter… and getting smashed. When Kate’s partying spirals into hard-core asocial behavior, compromising her job as an elementary schoolteacher, something’s got to give. But change isn’t exactly a cakewalk. Sobriety means she will have to confront the lies she’s been spinning at work, her troubling relationship with her mother, and the nature of her bond with Charlie.
