Posted on Friday, May 10th, 2013 by Germain Lussier
August: Osage County, a Pulitzer Prize and multiple Tony award winning play, is hoping to become a multiple Oscar-winning film. Directed by John Wells (The Company Men), the film has one of the most impressive dramatic casts in recent memory: Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch,Margot Martindale, Chris Cooper, Dermot Mulroney, Juliette Lewis, Abigail Breslin, and Sam Shepard. They’ll bring to life a story about a group of young women forced to go home and deal with their parents. A simple story to be sure, but a powder keg for emotion and drama.
Don’t believe me, though. Check out the trailer and poster for the November 8 release.
And here’s the poster.
As released by The Weinstein Company, everything about this film screams Oscar. From this trailer, do you think it can measure up?
