AUGUST OSAGE COUNTY/ LE TEMPS D'UN ÉTÉ

Julianne Nicholson, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts


Opening this Friday January 10 2014, this movie is all about the craft of acting. The cast is superb: MERYL STREEP, JULIA ROBERTS, IWAN McGREGOR, CHRIS COOPER, ABIGAIL BRESLIN, BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH, JULIETTE LEWIS, MARGO MARTINDALE, JULIANNE NICHOLSON and more. It is a very dark comedy but it is strangely evocative of the dysfunction that affects any family in the world. Secrets and lies are revealed and many hearts are broken. Benedict Cumberbatch is excellent in his portrayal of a timid adult. I just love Margo Martindale anytime I see her, she never disappoints. Of course the two stars, Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts,  are equal to their reputations and provide an emotion packed exchange between mother and daughter as they attempt to forge some kind of bond. This film is produced by GEORGE CLOONEY.
