|Still from Smashed|
As the Sundance Film Festival approaches the halfway mark over in Park City, the buzz continues to build for some promising Indies. Safety Not Guaranteed in particular is garnering a bit of buzz after some positive reception at its initial Screening. The Sci-Fi Comedy centers around two employees at a Magazine (played by Jake M. Johnson and Aubrey Plaza), whom both go on an all-out search to find a Man who placed a whacky ad for Time Travel in the Classifieds. New York Magazine reports "...expect a lucrative sale for this one, which has tons of mainstream breakout potential".
Mary Elizabeth Winstead who has been long overdue for a breakthrough, is getting lots of praise for her portrayal as an alcoholic Mother on the brink of changing her ways in Smashed - not to be confused in any way with the NBC Musical Series Smash, starring Katharine McPhee and Debra Messing ... although the latter's Will & Grace Co-star Megan Mullally does make an appearance in the Film. Meanwhile Winstead's Husband, played by Aaron Paul, makes a turn for the worse. Slash Film already is calling the Drama a "must-see". Crossing fingers we see this one surface at TIFF!
