When we first meet functioning alcoholic Kate Hannah, she’s already close to rock bottom. She takes a shot of whiskey to brace herself for a day of teaching first grade. When she vomits at school, a student asks if she’s pregnant. Desperate to disguise her hangover, she lies and says she is. It’s a deception that could cost her career, but also save her life – the problem is that her boyfriend would not give up the same lifestlye. James Ponsoldt’s Smashed traces its heroine’s downward spiral — from smoking crack in a drunken lapse of judgment to an outrageous episode in a convenience store — with insight, daring and profound empathy.
