August: Osage County

£6 Mondays at the Barbican

Perhaps not the catchiest title of all time, but forget the name, feel the width of that cast list – Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Juliette Lewis, Sam Shepherd, Chris Cooper, Dermot Mulroney, Benedict Cucumberpatch and (Little Miss Sunshine herself) Abigail Breslin.

Adapted from Tracy Letts’s original stage play which won multiple Tony awards and picked up a Pulitzer prize for Drama, the film is a look at the lives of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose paths have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Oklahoma house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them.

Screen 1 is the largest of the Barbican's three screens, but, even so, if you know you can definitely make it, I'd still advise booking in advance.

Tickets can be bought (HERE)

I will send out meeting and contact details shortly before the event.  We will definitely go for a drink afterwards to discuss the film.

    So sorry to have missed what sounds like a great occasion…! -I was singing (for my supper) with 'Choir With No Name' at the time… But I'll have to see if I can free up a Monday to be there with you guys…!

    It was my first time at the event, actually first time I joined a group like this and because of this was a little apprehensive.
    I should not have worried! Gavin organised everything perfectly! I enjoyed the venue as well. Being smaller, it made coming together so much easier. I cannot wait for next event! The movie was ok but I mostly impressed about how lovely everyone was and how prepared everyone is. I need to catch up on so many films now just to keep up ;)

    Hi there, I was thinking to join this group for the first time for tomorrow's film at the Barbican. Is there a meeting point before the film starts? I'm a little apprehensive not knowing anyone that I might miss you guys. I wanted to buy the ticket...should I get it for a specific section of screen 1?

    February 2, 2014

    • Gavin

      Hi Valeria. I've sent you an e-mail with more details.

      February 2, 2014

    Has anyone booked their ticket yet or are people just buying their tickets on the day?

    January 31, 2014

    • Gavin

      Hi Anjna. Myself and at least one other group member have already bought tickets. Only 50% of all tickets available appear to have been sold at this point, so you'll probably be fine buying one on the night, but if you definitely know you can make it, I'd always recommend buying in advance - just in case ...

    Oh wow…! -If only I didn't sing with 'Choir With No Name' every Monday night…! I could ignore a thing I've been doing for 4 years for a film that has had (at best) mixed reviews…?!

    Grabbed E14 as that was the most central row that was also completely clear,if we all wanted to try group in one area. This will be my first time seeing a movie at the Barbican so looking forward to it, saw a small play there years ago and liked the venue then.

    so is the date at the top correct?

    January 7, 2014

    • Gavin

      Hi Mel. The Barbican probably won't announce their plans for this film until around the 17th. I'll let you know as soon I can about the date.

      January 8, 2014

    • Gavin

      The earlier message on this thread about a date change refered to the fact that the release date for the film had previously been put back by the distributors

      January 8, 2014

  • Fiona

    Would prefer an earlier screening, thanks
