Film Trailers: AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY
Ok. Meryl Streep is the best actress alive, maybe of all time. She is consistently fantastic in every role she is in, regardless if the film is good or not, example, The Iron Lady. The new trailer for John Wells' directed August: Osage County firmly puts Ms. Streep and Julia Roberts center and front. The film, based on the play from Tracy Letts who also wrote the screenplay, revolves around the Weston family who are brought back together after a family crisis and surrounded, or smothered, by the women who raised them. Another nomination for Ms. Streep is a done deal, even though the southern accent I'm not crazy about. A little too much drawl and whine but I'm sure it will work in the film. The film also stars the aforementioned Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Abigail Breslin, Juliette Lewis, Dermot Mulroney, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sam Shepherd and Chris Cooper. The real actor to watch out for is Cumberbatch. Man is about to break out in a big way. Enjoy.
