August: Osage County by John Wells, 2013 (R)

Nominated for the Oscars 2014 for the following categories: Actress in a Leading Role, Actress in a Supporting Role

When their father disappears, three strong-willed women return to their childhood home and to their equally strong-willed mother. As they search for their patriarch, the dysfunctional family members wind up facing difficult truths about themselves.

One of the craziest movie of this year, filled with emotions, wrongdoing, kind of explaining how our society is so messed up, in a nutshell. And somehow, all these characters and their flaws deserve some loving, and you get to understand them, perhaps not for all they are, but for how they all belong. It is an interesting portrayal, with amazing performances, mostly from Benedict Cumberbatch and Julianne Nicholson. Now three things, Meryl Streep I think went overboard in her acting, Julia Robert looks like she is hunting for best supporting role in a unnatural way, and finally (what for spoiler), how come Julianne Nicholson (Masters of Sex) is playing again a woman with cervical cancer?

with Meryl Streep (Out of Africa, Prime, The Iron Lady, Marvin's Room, It's Complicated, Julie and Julia, Kramer Vs. Kramer, Hope Springs), Julia Roberts (Duplicity, Mirror Mirror Snow White, Eat Pray Love, Larry Crowne, Fireflies in the Garden), Chris Cooper (The Company Men, The Horse Whisperer, The Company You Keep, American Beauty), Ewan McGregor (Beginners, Amelia, Haywire, The Men Who Stare At Goats, I Love You Phillip Morris, The Ghost Writer, Salmon Fishing In Yemen, Perfect Sense), Margo Martindale (Beautiful Creatures), Abigail Breslin (The Call, Little Miss Sunshine, Rango), Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness, War Horse, Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy, The Whistleblower), Juliette Lewis, Dermot Mulroney (J. Edgar, The Grey), Julianne Nicholson (Keep the Lights On, Puccini for Beginners, Masters of Sex), Sam Shepard (Out of the Furnace, Mud), Misty Upham (Frozen River)
From the director of The Company Men, produced by George Clooney, Jean Doumanian, Grant Heslov, Steve Traxler, and Bob and Harvey Weinstein.
