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.

Based off the stage play by Tracy Letts, it's about a dysfunctional family with heavy baggage. Meryl Streep gives one heck of a performance as Violet, the mouth cancer mama that has a hard time communicating with her children. Her oldest daughter Barbara is the one who is trying to keep a watchful eye on Mama Meryl, but it's her cheating husband and rebellious daughter she should keep a focus on! It is a deep dark comedy overall, but it reeks more of the drama set in Osage County during the month of August....
