Firstly its an amazing cast, Meryl Streep is the star of the show but Julia Roberts steals the limelight throughout. Roberts plays a tough character that she doesn't usually portray. At first I thought that the films would be boring, but i was wrong. the relationships between the characters and the actors themselves, as well as the great story line that sees old family hatreds rise alongside new secrets means that the plot is beautiful and devastating. There is also Benedict Cumberbatch singing - its definitely worth the watch.

Excellent film of a brilliant play. Julia Roberts' best performance by having to be great opposite Meryl Streep.

My husband and I started to watch this but eventually gave up and concluded that it was probably a film for the American market.

...after a family patriarch kills himself. And, nope...this plot detail isn't even close to being a spoiler.

This is a film that certainly won't be for everybody. If you are troubled by sensitive topics (to include suicide, alcoholism, drug addiction, physical abuse, emotional abuse, infidelity and incest): this movie won't be for you. If you are troubled by dysfunctional families populated by either toxic or failing relationships: this movie won't be for you. If you watch movies in the hope that the main characters will emerge from the story to move themselves in unsuspecting ways: this movie won't be for you (pretty much what you see is what you get from the jump).

Its origins as a play are evident as the story is advanced almost exclusively by dialog exchanged in the dark, cluttered and sweltering Osage County (Oklahoma) home of Beverly and Violet Westin. Beverly is a poet --apparently of some renown-- whose craft has been set aside in favor of drinking. Vi is his chain smoking, pill-addled wife, recently diagnosed with mouth cancer. They have been joined in their home by a native American housekeeper, Johnna, hired to help care for Vi as she faces chemotherapy. In the movie's opening, Beverly mentions the unspoken contracts that mark long marriages. He names one of theirs (his drinking and her pills as things they endure together), and leaves no doubt that we are about to learn more.

And then he disappears into the bottom of a lake, prompting the return of his three adult daughters (one separated, but with her spouse and teenage daughter in tow, one engaged and with her Ferrari-driving Miami-based fiance tagging along and one apparently single...but more will be revealed about this). For most movies this would be the peak of darkness.
