**1/2 Smashed The most interesting thing about this small, pat drama is the way its alcoholic schoolteacher never looks drunk — at least, not the way drunk people do in movies. Her face isn’t falling off. It could be just that Mary Elizabeth Winstead isn’t much of an actress or she’s opted not to be that kind of actress. But the movie might need that kind of intensity, since it doesn’t really have anything else. (83 min., R) (Wesley Morris)
