Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has officially announced and detailed its upcoming Blu-ray release of James Ponsoldt's latest film Smashed (2012), starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aaron Paul and Octavia Spencer. The release will be available for purchase on March 12th.
Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, Smashed is an intensely moving story about love, fidelity and what it means to love someone and be committed to them, while recognizing the need to change your life…and the heartbreaking discovery that your partner won't be changing with you.
Kate and Charlie are a young married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of music, laughter and alcohol...especially the latter. When Kateʼs drinking leads her to dangerous places and her job as a school teacher is put in 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 isn't as easy as Kate had anticipated. Her new lifestyle forces her to confront a troubling relationship with her mother, as well as the necessity of facing the lies sheʼs told her employer. She also must question whether or not her relationship with Charlie is built on love or is just a boozy diversion from adulthood.
