The Weinstein Company are aiming for Oscar gold with “August: Osage Country,” a much-buzzed about film adaptation of
Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize-winning 2007 play (Letts also adapted his
plays “Bug” and “Killer Joe” for the big screen). With a remarkable cast
that includes Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts (as mother and daughter), the film —
written by Letts and directed by “The Company Men” helmer John Wells — is a
darkly comic family saga set in Oklahoma.
Gearing up for a November 8 release in the heat of awards season, The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for the drama, offering you your first peek at Streep and Roberts in action, in addition to the film’s remarkable supporting cast that includes Ewan McGregor, Juliette Lewis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin,
Chris Cooper, Sam Shepard and Dermot Mulroney, all in great form.
