August: Osage County, directed by John Wells (The Company of Men), is adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tracy Letts (winner of five Tony Awards in 2008, including Best Play). Filled with secrets, recriminations and very dark humor, the film boasts an all-star cast, including Abigail Breslin, Chris Cooper, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Margo Martindale, Ewan McGregor, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Nicholson, Julia Roberts, Sam Shepard, Meryl Streep and Misty Upham.
Scott Foundas's Variety review called it a "splendid film version of playwright Tracy Letts’ acid-tongued Broadway triumph about three generations in a large and highly dysfunctional Oklahoma family. ... It’s a panorama of unfulfilled lives in which people do the most unforgivable things to the ones they (supposedly) love."
