Academy Award Winners Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts star in the darkly hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives converge when a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional mother who raised them. August: Osage County is based on the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama-winning play by Tracy Letts who is also known as Andrew Lockhart on Showtime's Homeland. Director John Wells, best known as executive producer and showrunner of hit television series ER, The West Wing, and Shameless, skillfully translates from stage to screen, leading an all-star cast that includes Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Margo Martindale, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Nicholson, Sam Shepard and Misty Upham.
In his review for The Wall Street Journal, Joe Morgenstern hails Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts' performances as "marvelous," while Los Angeles Daily News' Bob Strauss proclaims, "everyone is at the top of their game." Scott Foundas of Variety declares, "John Wells does an impressive job the result is far more successful than any more stylized 'cinematic' treatment."
August: Osage County Special features include Feature and Deleted Scenes Commentary With Director John Wells and Cinematographer Adriano Goldman, The Making Of August: Osage County and a featurette On Writing With Tracy Letts.
