Streep is brilliant once again Posted by: from: on This is a searing drama about a dysfunctional family reuniting after the death of the patriarch, under suspicious circumstances. The gradual unfolding of wounds - long past, and some fresh - is heart rending. If you can watch this, and not be grateful your own family, then you have my deepest sympathy. The discomfort of seeing all this pain unfold is offset by the stunning performance of Meryl Streep as the matriarch who still dominates lives, directly and indirectly, for better or for worse. Adding to the realness is the "anti-glam" makeup on the actresses, all of whom also play their parts well. I have to admit that the first time through, this was difficult to watch. Knowing the full story made the second time a chance to admire great artistry. But that's the advantage of owning a dvd, *when* the film is truly great.

Bought for wife who wanted to see this movie. Posted by: from: Scranton, Pa. on Simply awful movie. Way over the top acting, I would expect more from Meryl Streep, but I guess she needed the money and signed on just for that. This was more of a made for TV movie than a featured release, and even then, I wouldn't watch it. It seemed to me that everyone in this movie was trying to out act one another, guess what, it made it even more excruciating to watch. I only watched it for about a half hour and I am surprised I lasted that long.

Excellent Ensemble Cast Posted by: from: on This movie was riveting and surprising. The acting was top-notch from all involved in particular Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper. If you're family isnt like this I know you know a family that is.

Excellent adaption of the play! Posted by: from: Dartmouth, MA on The acting is impeccable and the story is a stunning and disturbing combination of laughter through tears. If you can't see your own family in the story, you will at least recognize someone you know! You will laugh and at times, you will be shocked at the dysfunction of this recognizable family. I saw the play in Boston. The stage version was more adaptable to the humor. But still an excellent film!

August Osage County Posted by: from: New York, NY on If you thought your family had drama and was full of crazy people, then WAIT until you see this family because you will NEVER think your family is crazy again. Feud's, secrets and LOTS of cursing are ALL I will say but you will NOT be disappointed.

HOME RUN Posted by: from: st.louis, MO on As usual, Meryl Steep hits it out of the park with her acting and the rest of the cast hold there own also. As disfunctional as this family is it hits home and can be realted to many families out there. Mine for sure Ha Ha... Enjoy the Roller Coaster Ride......

Very good movie Posted by: from: on There are only a few very good movies produced each year. This is one of them. A drama about complex family lives and relationships that are not uncommon or far from real-life of many Americans. Worth watching, unless you are completely into action movies.

Vile and nasty - stopped in the middle of the film Posted by: from: Annapolis, MD on This is full of nastiness and obscenities. I saw no value in this -- understand the theme of a dysfunctional family but the story is presented in a way that disgusts the viewer rather than makes its point.
