August: Osage County

August: Osage County  tells the dark and deeply touching 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. Based on the Broadway play (the winner of five Tony Awards in 2008, including Best Play). 

The film version of August: Osage County was directed by John Wells  and features an all-star cast, including Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Margo Martindale, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Nicholson, Sam Shepard and Misty Upham.

Given the early sundown time, I'm making this a bit earlier than our usual shows. Dinner location will be in the River Point Shopping Center, just south of the theater.

    For me, it was a frenzy of world class actors in a quagmire of miserable people that leaves one rooting for incest. The level of talent in the room pushed most of them to scenary chewing heights so that the film suffered. Cheers for Chris Cooper who stayed true to a nuanced performance. The upside of the night was the restaurant, I had a terrific steak.

    Know it was too "in your face" for some of our group, but the acting was superb across the board. Every family has it's troubles, and this hit a lot of those common chords.
    Was more disappointed with the restaurant and the noise level that we had to put up with.
