I will never forgive myself for choosing The Company You Keep over Smashed at TIFF this year. I am so sorry. Here’s the first trailer and poster for the film that stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Paul as a married couple, Kate & Charlie, whose bond is built on a mutual love of alcohol. Their relationship is put to the test when Kate decides to get sober. The film was very well-received at Sundance this past year with many reviewers praising Winstead’s tour-de-force performance.
Nick Offerman, Megan Mullaly, Octavia Spencer, and Mary Kay Place co-star. Smashed opens on October 12th. Trailer courtesy of Yahoo.
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 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.
