Crop And Save
August: Osage County (2013)
When you see such a great cast list you expect the film they are starring in to be great, and it is exactly that, with Julia Roberts upstaging the ever great Meryl Streep, and Benedict Cumberbatch showing there's more to him than just Sherlock.
This dysfunctional family is made up of characters everyone can relate to, and they have issues most families have to deal with at some point or other. They also harbour secrets which, when being addressed, make viewing riveting.
Chris Cooper, and Margo Martindale as the uncle and aunt offer up some comic relief, and Juliane Nicholson does brilliantly at playing the lesser popular sister, with Juliette Lewis admirably taking on a character you would not usually associate her with.
If, like me, you prefer dialogue driven films, which really show off the skill of an actor/actress then you'll find this film a joy from start to finish. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
