August: Osage County ★★★

This one kept getting trailered at the start of blu-rays and got me interested enough that I decided if I ever saw it on sale cheap I would pick it up. Mainly due to being a long time fine of Juliette Lewis. Anyway, it popped up for $5, which is as cheap as it gets these days. It’s good. It’s a southern drama based on a play that manages to not feel too much like a play while you watch it. It’s rather soapy and melodramatic, but everyone is really good in it, and I’m biased to think Lewis was really good in a smaller but complicated role as the little sister. Oh, it’s about a bunch of sisters reuniting with their bitch mum over a family tragedy. Juliette Lewis plays the little sister. It was good and fan fave Benedict Cumberbatch is in it too.
