August: Osage County is an upcoming movie from director John Wells based off of the acclaimed stage play of the same name by Tracy Letts. The family drama has a star-studded cast, from Meryl Streep in one of her more bitter and biting characters of recent years (though in the trailer she shines as per usual) to Julia Roberts who also appears strong in the trailer to an all-grown-up teenage Abigail Breslin. Benedict Cumberpatch, Ewan McGregor, and Juliette Lewis also star, among others.
Judging from the trailer alone it looks like a typical family drama with some comedic moments sprinkled in, Streep’s matriarchal character appears to wreak havoc on her family as they trickle in to her country estate for a funeral. August: Osage County is set for theatrical release on November 8th, 2013.[via /Film]
