Movie Summary

Director:
John Wells (III)
Released:
2013
Rating:
R
Based on Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play of the same name, AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY is a 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 Oklahoma house they grew up in and the dysfunctional woman who raised them. Directed by John Wells (THE COMPANY MEN), the film features an all-star cast led by Golden Globe-Nominees Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, including Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Margo Martindale, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Nicholson, Sam Shepard, and Misty Upham.
