As this trailer shows, August: Osage County has certainly pulled together an impressive cast, including Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin, Chris Cooper, Juliette Lewis, Dermot Mulroney and Sam Shepard.
Based on Terry Letts’ Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play, the film is about the dysfunctional Weston family and the daughters who have gone their separate ways, until a crisis brings them back to their Midwestern home. The film should be out later this year.
John Wells directs. The movie is due for an Oscar qualifying run in the US this Christmas, which a UK release set for mid January.
