Smashed Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Charlie (Aaron Paul) are a young married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of music, laughter and drinking...especially the drinking. When Kate’s drinking leads her to dangerous places and her job as an elementary school teacher is put into jeopardy, she decides to join AA and get sober. Sobriety isn’t as easy as Kate had anticipated. She realizes she must face a difficult past, including a troubled relationship with her mother, (Mary Kay Place) a party girl in her own right. To cover up a drinking related incident which takes place in the classroom, Kate fabricates a story to her employer, the school principal, Patricia Barnes, (Megan Mullally) who is overly nurturing and perhaps nosy. This lie soon balloons out of control and Kate is faced with a myriad of important choices she must make. Charlie, a music writer, whose care-free demeanor hasn’t changed much since college, struggles to be supportive of Kate’s new lifestyle.
