Sony Pictures has announced that they are bringing their dramedy Smashed to Blu-ray this March. The film is co-written and directed by James Ponsoldt and stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aaron Paul, Octavia Spencer, Nick Offerman, and Megan Mullally. Smashed will be available in stores on Blu-ray and DVD on March 12, 2013.
In the film, Kate (Winstead) and Charlie (Paul) have a relationship well lubricated with alcohol, but Kate finally finds her chemical appetites have gotten completely out of control. With the help of an ex-addict friend at work, Kate finds a support group that helps her begin to conquer her addictions. However, that recovery proves just part of a larger personal challenge to rebuild her life even as her marriage with her drunken husband deteriorates.
Smashed was released in October of 2012 and has grossed a paltry sum of just over $300 thousand at the box office, but has received a lot of critical acclaim.
The Blu-ray will include several special features, including: a commentary with Director James Ponsoldt & Actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead; deleted scenes; Making Smashed featurette; and Toronto Film Festival Red Carpet and Q&A featurette.
