August: Osage County

Director John Wells adapted the award winning play by Tracy Letts with a stellar cast. The disappearance of a patriarch brings his family together where sparks fly between the members as they cope with grief while secrets and lies are exposed. Wells assembled a terrific cast and lets them do what they do best with the acid drenched war of the words. The glorious Meryl Streep stars with another terrific performance that sets the standard high for the rest of the cast who step up and shine as well. The ensemble includes Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper, Ewan McGregor, Margo Martindale, Benedict Cumberbatch and Juliette Lewis amongst others. 1001 Films' coverage of films on DVD.
