‘August: Osage County’ Trailer: Misery Loves Family

August: Osage County‘ looks like the kind of film that’s primed to win Oscars. Based on the Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tracy Letts, the film is a high impact dramedy filled with all of the emotional turmoil and familial dysfunction you can imagine. The new trailer is probably only the tip of the iceberg.

‘August: Osage County’ earned mixed reviews from critics at the Toronto International Film Festival, but our own Jordan Hoffman had his fair share of nice things to say about it. There’s no denying this has prestige written all over it, from the pedigree of the source material to the insanely good cast, which includes Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sam Shephard, Chris Cooper, Juliette Lewis and Margo Martindale. Considering the original source material is quite acclaimed, we’re excited for you to experience these top stars tackling the film’s juicy dialogue.

Here’s the official synopsis:

‘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.

‘August: Osage County’ enters limited release on December 25, 2013. If you ever wanted to escape your dysfunctional family holiday gathering with a movie about a dysfunctional family gathering, this is your chance.
