Second Opinion - August: Osage County (2013)

27 January 2014 2:56 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

August: Osage County, 2013.

Directed by John Wells.

Starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper. Ewan McGregor, Margo Martindale, Sam Shepard, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Nicholson, Juliette Lewis, Abigail Breslin and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Synopsis:

A look at the lives of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose paths have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Oklahoma house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them.

Sometimes a script comes together which functions solely to allow a star studied ensemble to chew scenery, shout, scream, and cry at each other and generally get the chance to show their acting range. Is there anything wrong with that? Not as far as I’m concerned, and that’s why August: Osage County is a rousing success.

Unlike the previous two film adaptions of Tracy Letts plays, Bug and Killer Joe, August: Osage County does not deliver »
