Smashed, which earned a Special Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, follows Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Charlie (Aaron Paul), a young married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of music, laughter and drinking...especially the drinking. When Kateʼs drinking leads her to dangerous places and her job as a school teacher is put into jeopardy, she decides to join AA and get sober. With the help of her friend and sponsor Jenny, and the vice principal at her school, the awkward, but well intentioned, Mr. Davies, Kate takes steps toward improving her health and life. Sobriety isnʼt as easy as Kate had anticipated. Her new lifestyle brings to the surface a troubling relationship with her mother, facing the lies sheʼs told her employer and calls into question whether or not her relationship with Charlie is built on love or is just boozy diversion from adulthood.

“This movie is equal parts funny and equal parts serious - but the music was never supposed to tell you how to feel - the directing and acting performances are so amazing that we didn't need to do much to make you feel something,” said Johnson.
