August: Osage County is a Centerpiece Feature Film being presented at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House!
This darkly funny family drama, a film adaptation of Tracy Lett's Broadway phenomenon, tells the story of the highly dysfunctional Westons, who are all returning to the home they once shared after years of drifting apart.Violet (Meryl Streep) is a bruising, battering harpy whose interest in "truth-telling" stokes old fires, reopens old wounds, and lays waste to the human landscape around her.
Filled with the historionics of slamming doors and smashing crockery, the story evokes the bracing, devastating kind of theatrical expeience created by the likes of Eugene O'Neill, Edward Albee, Tennessee Williams, and Arthur Miller. But the focus is on the femal, particularly Violet and her oldest daughter, Barbara (Julia Roberts).
The stellar cast also includes Ewan McGregor, Juliette Lewis, SamShepard, Dermot Mulroney,Chris Cooper and Abigail Breslin.
