Smashed 2012 Official Trailer

Until this year's Sundance, Mary Elizabeth Winstead was mostly known for roles in genre films like "The Thing," "Scott Pilgrim," and "Death Proof," but then she made "Smashed," which recently traveled up to the Toronto International Film Festival to collect even more raves. But in "Smashed," Winstead plays one half of an alcoholic couple that decides to kick the habit, just runs into more troubles from there, and she's earned raves for it. MTV News caught up with Winstead in Toronto, where she talked about watching the film develop, how to laugh at alcoholism, and the reactions from real addicts. 

It took time for Winstead to see what "Smashed" would become after she signed on and watched stars sign on and a final cut come together. "I saw a rough cut, which is the cut they submitted to Sundance, and I already loved it. I had no music, it was roughly edited, Already a geek idol thanks to her role as Ramona Flowers in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead is having a pretty good 2012, thanks to her starring role in "Smashed," a drama about a young alcoholic married couple (completed by "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul), which won rave reviews at Sundance this year -- read our own here -- and continued when the film played the Toronto International Film Festival this week. 

It's a performance that many are tipping for awards attention at the end of the year, and Winstead has several promising pictures on the way in 2013, including Roman Coppola's "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," comedy "A.C.O.D." and a reunion with "Smashed" director James Ponsoldt on "The Spectacular Now." But her future plans don't stop at acting, as Winstead told us in Toronto this week.

Storyline-A married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of alcohol gets their relationship put to the test when the wife decides to get sober.
