‘August: Osage County

Standard

Last night I had the good fortune to go to the premiere of August: Osage County and see almost all the stars of the movie Meryl Streep (looks fantastic), Julia Roberts (even though you can see ‘Pretty Woman’ is getting older, you can also tell she’s had no work done & looks great), Margo Martindale, Ewan McGregor, Julianne Nicholson, Dermot Mulroney, and Juliette Nicholson..Good movie, but you’ve seen it before..crazy dysfunctional family drama. you’ve seen Meryl do this role..Dermot Mulrooney & Juliette Lewis have played these same characters too many times now to count.. But Julia Roberts & Julianne Nicholson were fantastic.. Both held their own against a always good Meryl Streep. Benedict Cumberbatch who I hoped would be great, barely came across. And I’m glad Margo is getting the roles she deserves after all this time.. It’s depressing as hell, but hey it might make you realize that you thought your family was crazy but maybe they aren’t so bad after all. Grade: C+ (for above average performances by most) #peggyatthemovies
