Family drama – just in time for the holidays.
In August: Osage Country, the star-studded adaptation of Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer-winning play about an Oklahoma family “marinating in its own miserablism,” as EW’s Owen Gleiberman referred to the plot in his review at the Toronto Film Festival, Meryl Streep portrays an aging matriarch presiding over her husband’s funeral. When her grown daughters – Julia Roberts, Juliette Lewis, and Julianne Nicholson – return home, verbal sparks fly as long-brewing conflicts and resentments come to a head.
In an exclusive trailer, below, check out press conference highlights from Streep, Roberts, and director John Wells about how the film came together. “You don’t get a vote in who’s in your family,” Streep explains in the clip. “And that is the story.”
Here’s the original trailer:
