August: Osage County (2013) [Director: John Wells]
Even though this all out brawl of a film features high caliber actresses Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, it still fails to grab the audience. With one character being hooked on pain pills throughout most of the film, and the fact the film is mostly centered around cursing, pain pills, marijuana, and useless drama, it is a poor example of a film in every aspect.
Here's the bottom line. With the half-cocked performances, foul language littered though out the film, and it's heavy depiction of drug usage, this film it almost like a shock TV show with everyone confronting their problems in a violent way. This film could use a Dr. Phil touch. I give it one out of five Stars.
