AUGUST:OSAGE COUNTY is an adaption of the Broadway show of the same name and won both a Tony and Pulitzer. Written by Tracy Letts, it is about a family overcoming differences “when their alcoholic patriarch goes missing”. It is directed by John Wells and the cast includes Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Juliette Lewis, Abagail Breslin and Dermont Mulroney.

Producer Harvey Weinstein is already working on getting AUGUST:OSAGE COUNTY some Oscars. He held a test screening on Monday and some people in attendance are predicting a fourth Best Actress Oscar for Meryl Streep. ioweurl on Tumblr posted this:

It looks like reviews are mixed, but they agreed that the acting was strong enough for some awards. In the end this little test screening doesn’t mean anything until the critics see it, but it at lease starts the conversation about possible Oscar contenders.

Release date: November 18, 2013

  1. My block of 10 and under kids love the parade. The majiroty of costumes were fun and creative and certainly appropriate for the young ones. Everyone has their opinion, so simply avoid the parade if you feel uncomfortable!
