a touching yet tragic love affair
on 8 April 2016
"Smashed" is a very good contemporary drama - dealing with important and complex issues, including family break-up and heartache. This is a story about a young married couple who are experiencing problems. The acting is excellent, from both Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Paul.
The focus is on Winstead's character, as she attempts to become sober - and, in so doing, she realises that her marriage is part of the problem. We witness the severe difficulties caused by alcoholism, and the effects it can have on daily life. But the movie also deals with the more touching and sentimental aspects of love in this couple's relationship.
Note: I purchased the import Blu-ray. It's an excellent quality image - but it only has region 1 playback.
