August: Osage County shows the vulnerable raw emotions of many personality types found in families all around the world.
The film is an adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony winning play by Tracy Letts. Watching the riveting dysfunctional family yelling and degrading each other was reminiscent of watching Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.” The intensity, the reality, the total immersion into the anxiety of the situation will take you to an emotional place that either you can learn from or will be terrified because of the reality that is being portrayed.
Family mental issues sometimes seem to be the “Mothers” fault and Meryl Streep portrays is the the ultimate “mom mess” sharing absolutely no FUN with this dysfunctional family. She says “I am truth telling and some people are antagonized by the truth.” The dad, Sam Shepard drank and the mom, Meryl Streep, self medicated with pills to get through life with the children being collateral damage. The parents thought they were doing their best to provide for the kids and what they did was for them.
The film covers:
- Prescription drug addiction
