“August: Osage County” has a cast full of A-list talent in a story of a family with a lot of problems. A lot may be an understatement.
The family deals with suicide, drug addiction, alcoholism, infidelity, incest, pedophilia, abuse, neglect and lots and lots of anger. That might not be an exhaustive list, but it’s all I can remember.
In short, it’s not a happy movie. It is described by many as a dark comedy, but the comedic moments are few and far between.
