August: Osage County

Based on Tracy Lett's play of the same name, "August..." is by far the best movie in a very long time. While telling the story of 3 sisters returning home for the funeral of their manages to be funny and at the same time deeply moving.
This film offers two of the best performances this year. Julia Roberts as daughter Barbara Weston gives one of her best performances to date, and Meryl Streep deserves another Academy Award for her portrayal of Violet Weston...the drug addict mother filled with rage.
What was the Academy thinking when they did not nominate this film for Best Picture?
I am hoping voters won't pass over these two very deserving actresses.

Rated R
2 hr. 10 min.
