August: Osage County 
Dysfunctional family doesn't even cover it.
3.5/4 stars

Painfully funny but more often just downright painful. Anyone going into AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY expecting a comedy as it has been advertised will be given a rude awakening. This is the ultimate feel bad movie of the year (no wonder they pushed the original release date on christmas day to january.) With a cast featuring such wonderful actors as Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts (in one of her very best performances) Chris Cooper (whose really the only redeeming character of the bunch, save for Cumberbatch and the wonderful Julianne Nicholson.) The very missed Juliette Lewis. As well as Ewan McGregor showing an intensity rarely seen, and even Abigail Breslin is heartbreaking in a pivotal moment. This is a film of fights, arguments, bitter family truths and lies, and while at times I was laughing at how relatable it all was, at the same time it ultimately destroyed this viewer. So be warned, go in for the great acting on display, but be prepared to feel very deeply depressed afterward. Some may even hate it because of this. I thought it was nearly great, but could I watch it again? Not for a long long time.
