With TIFF just around the corner, The Toronto Star has reviewed Mary’s upcoming film Smashed saying her performance is “superb”:
A superb, career-making performance by Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Kate, a young, married Grade 1 teacher who is what they call a “high-functioning alcoholic.” Her husband (Aaron Paul) is her drinking buddy but the party is getting increasingly out of hand, as evidenced in the first shocking scenes. The script goes to some predictable places but is lifted by the supporting cast, especially Megan Mullally as her trusting principal and Mary Kay Place as Kate’s similarly afflicted mother.
So happy for Mary! Here’s to an Oscar nomination. 🙂
Also, some new behind-the-scenes pics of Mary in The Spectacular Now have been posted via the film’s screenplay writer, where Mary wrapped all her scenes for the film.
RT @thisisweber: That’s a wrap for the so cool, so talented @M_E_Winstead! Thank you for being a part of #TheSpectacularNow!
