Mary Elizabeth Winstead has a new drama coming out of Sundance called Smashed. James Pondsoldt‘s indie drama is about a young alcoholic woman that tries changing her lifestyle, while confronting her troubled relationship with her mother and adapting to a new drink-free environment with her husband.
It sounds like a downer and the trailer doesn’t really paint it up to be all that happy-go-lucky, but I’m interested, if only to see Winstead lead a film with a dramatic role. I’m not convinced that Smashed will be anything special, but it could harbor a career-best performance from a very talented actress.
Smashed opens in theaters on October 12th, 2012.
