In "Smashed," 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.

2012 Guide Analysis: "Called a loose reworking of the classic "Days of Wine and Roses", this indie fidelity dramedy deals with what happens when someone realises they need to make a change in their life but their partner isn’t up for making the same change.
The story follows a couple whose marriage thrives on their mutual alcoholism. When the woman's habits spiral into hard-core antisocial behaviour, she realises she must confront the lies she’s been spinning and must deal with how her newfound sobriety will affect her relationship with her husband.
The cast is pretty solid including strong TV talent like Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad"), Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace") and Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation") along with Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Golden Globe winner Octavia Spencer. Set to premiere at Sundance, filmmaker James Ponsoldt ("Off the Black") hopes the film will divide audiences over whether these two should stay together or are better off apart."
