A married couple puts their relationship to the test when one decides to get sober. Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Charlie (Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad) love a good time. They drink in the morning, they drink on the job, and they drink at night. When Kate – who is an elementary school teacher – has a few harrowing experiences she decides it might be time to cut back. But change is no 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. While many films indulge in the dramatic highs and lows of addiction, Smashed is more interested in the middle path. As Kate tests new boundaries, and shoulders the consequences of her choices, this beautifully acted story illustrates imperfect transformation and the challenges of living life honestly. (James Ponsoldt; 2012; USA; 85 min)
