With its big name cast – Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sam Shepard, Chris Cooper, Dermot Mulroney, etc – you’d expect to be hearing more about August: Osage County as it heads toward its December 25, 2013 theatrical release. Normally this far into the awards screening season we’re bombarded with info on any film a studio’s promoting as a potential Oscar contender, but maybe the Weinstein Company is just trying a low-key approach to building up an audience for this comedy/drama based on the play by Tracy Letts and directed by John Wells (The Company Men).
The buzz may be slow in building, however we do have four new clips to check out from the comedy/drama.
August: Osage County tells the dark, hilarious 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.
