Sony Pictures Classics has released the first trailer, four clips, and a poster for the indie drama Smashed, the latest from director James Ponsoldt (Off the Black). Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as Kate, a teacher whose life revolves around drinking and partying with her husband Charlie (Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul). With her job on the line, Kate decides to get sober, a choice which may threaten every aspect of her life. Take a look at new footage from this Sundance sensation, along with the one-sheet.
Kate and Charlie 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 school teacher, 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.
Smashed was released October 12th, 2012 and stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aaron Paul, Octavia Spencer, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Mary Kay Place, Kyle Gallner, Bree Turner. The film is directed by James Ponsoldt.
