Although I’m sure one is cooking, Sony Pictures Classics have gone the road less traveled and released four clips before delivering a trailer for one of our favorite Sundance dramas. In Smashed, director James Ponsoldt takes a devastating look at alcoholism, thanks to a magnificent lead performance from Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World‘s Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
One of best elements of the film is showing how her disease affects the people around her and below one can see Winstead interacting in very different situations.
