A young couple, played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Emmy winner Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad"), struggle to get a handle on their drinking in this well-played drama honored at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
The wife has an especially hard time making the journey toward sobriety, which forces her to come to terms with personal and professional dilemmas. The impressive cast also includes Oscar winner Octavia Spencer ("The Help"), Mary Kay Place, and spouses Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace") and Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation"). DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by Winstead and director and co-writer James Ponsoldt; deleted scenes; Toronto Film Festival footage. *** (R: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
