Synopsis


Smashed
A married couple find their love affair with alcohol threatening to unravel their relationship when the time comes to confront their addiction head on. Charlie (Aaron Paul) and Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) are a fun-loving couple, but their heavy drinking is starting to become a problem. As Kate constructs a series of elaborate lies to conceal her addiction from her co-workers, her relationship with her mother begins to deteriorate. Realizing that she needs to get sober in order to pull out of her downward spiral, she finds that Charlie is reluctant to join her, and starts to see their relationship in a new light. Meanwhile, once she gathers the courage to set the bottle aside, the real fight begins. Octavia L. Spencer, Nick Offerman, and Megan Mullally co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    A superbly acted film about a seldom seen topic.

    I've always been a very big fan of independent filmmaking. I've also been an even bigger fan of films about real characters that I feel the average viewer can identify with. This film deals with the topic of alcoholism in a mature manner that I feel is both enlightening and saddening. The characters are fun, relatable, and you can almost completely understand their slippery descent into their alcohol driven excess. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a movie that's willing to delve into a strong topic with more grace and effort than most mainstream, Hollywood film. However, if you're not used to low budget filmmaking, or require that 'escapism' that most general consumers seem to enjoy so much, you may want to skip this one. It's a great film, but may not be for you.

    This movie enters you into the life of a functioning alcoholic. Who is also married to a hindering alcoholic. Watch as the pair drink until reality hits! You have to keep in mind the fact this is an independent film. The actors wore their own clothes. Otherwise splendid movie.
