* ''Film/{{Stoker}}'' has India's mother Evelyn, who spends much of the film with a glass of wine in hand. She's bitter and resentful towards her daughter, and reeling from the recent loss of her husband. (Not helping matters is that said husband was said daughter's [[DaddysGirl preferred parent]].) Under the affections of Charlie, however, Evelyn begins to [[DefrostingIceQueen warm up a bit, drinking a bit less and smiling a bit more.]]. [[spoiler:Until she finds out Charlie's true intentions, anyway. Then things basically go to hell again.]]

* In ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'', this is heavily implied to be the case for [[{{Ojou}} Weiss Schnee]]'s mother; when Weiss returns home from Beacon Academy and asks as to her whereabouts, her brother Whitley offhandedly says that she's "drinking in the garden". Given the fact that the woman's married to the likes of [[AbusiveParents Jaques]] [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Schnee]], you can't entirely blame her.

The Lady Drunk is that [[AlwaysFemale female]] StockCharacter who's an [[TheAlcoholic alcoholic]], older woman (in her 40s to her 60s or so, and sometimes younger if the drinking [[YoungerThanTheyLook takes enough of a toll on her appearance]]) and usually has either a bitter, misanthropic personality or is the all-too-grown-up version of the HardDrinkingPartyGirl. She tends to have a certain amount of class or status, having likely started out as an upper-crust GrandeDame, she tends to drink from a martini glass and may be used as a stock member of a BigScrewedUpFamily. In her day, she was probably [[IWasQuiteALooker quite attractive]] and rather promiscuous.
