Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 09/10/2013
"[A] splendid film version of Tracy Letts' acid-tongued Broadway triumph."
Wall Street Journal - 12/24/2013
"The movie provides perfect sight lines, meaning a chance to see Ms. Streep do all of her stuff at every moment, and she is marvelous."
New York Times - 12/26/2013
"Here Ms. Streep smokes, rants, bites her fingers, slurs her speech and spews obscenities with the gusto of a tornado laying waste to a small town."
Entertainment Weekly - 01/06/2014
"[T]he movie is red meat for anyone who thrives on a certain brand of punchy, in-your-face emotional shock value." -- Grade: B
Rolling Stone - 12/24/2013
"Meryl Streep, trailing Oscar nominations wherever she goes, bites into the role of pill-junkie matriarch Violet like a juicy peach....And Chris Cooper underplays beautifully as Mattie's husband..."
RogerEbert.com - 12/27/2013
3 stars out of 4 -- "[The] film version mostly captures the stormy symphonic interplay of nasty recriminations, mocking taunts and hurtful revelations hurled with corrosive aplomb by a top-notch ensemble of actors."
Total Film - 01/13/2014
"[A] juicy slice of Southern melodrama which sees an all-star cast tear strips off each other on the occasion of a funeral-mandated family reunion."
Empire - 01/17/2014
3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] great actors working through meaty scenes."

Product Description:

Director John Wells' adaptation of Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize winning play August: Osage County tells the tale of the dysfunctional Westin clan, who all come together after the death of patriarch Beverly Weston (Sam Shepard). His wife Violet (Meryl Streep), who is fighting mouth cancer and a growing dependency on pain pills, sees her entire clan return home for the services, including her sister Mattie Fae Aiken (Margo Martindale) and her husband Charles (Chris Cooper) and their son "Little" Charles (Benedict Cumberbatch). Also arriving are Violet's three daughters: Barbara (Julia Roberts) and her husband Bill (Ewan McGregor), Ivy (Julianne Nicholson), and wild child Karen (Juliette Lewis), who brings her fiancé Steve (Dermot Mulroney). As the clan bickers and jokes, old truths come to the surface, jealousies flourish, and eventually each of the characters confronts some past hurt or future fear. AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
