    Review Of August: Osage County


    This is a good film that I expected to be better with it's all star cast and adapted from a Pulitzer winning play but it left me feeling a little off.  I found my biggest issue is that too much is packed in the film and with such a large cast character development was somewhat lacking.  Must still a worthwhile movie to see but it wasn't the film I wanted but was what I expected from the commercials.  It's an interesting glimpse into the life of a dysfunctional family in the Midwest full of secrets, lies, family obligations and disapproval but it just left me a little cold.  I think if they made this 3 separate films so that we could really know the characters it would have made a great trilogy. I'm giving it a solid B since Meryl dominated every scene she was in the film and through sheer magnetism transcended every word.  The interplay between her and her sister was a richness that I would have liked to see more of!



    Director: John Wells - Cast: Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch

    This tells the dark, hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them.
