This is practically only two months away! Sony Classics acquired US distribution for Mary’s upcoming film Smashed, and has now set the release date for the film as October 12th.
If you recall, Smashed debuted at Sundance this year to incredibly strong reviews, and jointly won the Special Jury Prize for Excellence in Independent Film Producing.
Winstead will star alongside Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul, The Help‘s Octavia Spencer, Megan Mullaly, Parks & Rec’s Nick Offerman.
“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.”
SPC will likely give the film a limited release first in LA and New York before the film gets distributed nationwide. As more details emerge, I’ll let you all know!
