This post honors Tracy Lett and the Pulitzer prize winning play August: Osage County (2007) that premiered at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre. The film version directed by John Wells, was shown in Toronto in September 2013, and released in cinemas in Janurary 2014. The film stars Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, yet seems to be having mixed reactions. Undoubtedly you'll want to see it yourself to find out if the critics are right (or wrong).
