August: Osage County

August Osage County
Review: This tells the dark, hilarious and touching story of the Western family. Their paths have all diverged until a family crisis starts. It brings them all back to their house where they where they grew up in and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them.
Director: John Wells
Actors: Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor and Benedict Cumberbatch
Year: 2013
Genre: Drama
Conclusion: 3/5
Great cast list. Excellent performances. You can imagine this very much a stage show. I think since the film it has been put into production for the stage. One director has stated that you should watch this movie at Christmas because then you realize how civilized your own family are. Benedict Cumberbatch is in this but doesn’t really have much of a part to play or to add to.
