The Weinstein Company has released a new trailer for John Wells’ upcoming film August: Osage County. Based on Tracy Letts’ acclaimed play of the same name, the film tells the story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. I caught the film yesterday at TIFF thought it was a great melodrama with incredibly biting and hilarious dialogue, complex characters, and absolutely remarkable performances across the board. Roberts has never been better, Streep is unsurprisingly spectacular and Julianne Nicholson will make everyone wish she was in more movies.
Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch, Margot Martindale, Chris Cooper, Dermot Mulroney, Juliette Lewis, Abigail Breslin, and Sam Shepard also star. August: Osage County opens on November 8th.
