Director John Wells' adaptation of Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize winning play August: Osage County tells the tale of the dysfunctional Westin clan, who all come together after the death of patriarch Beverly Weston. His wife Violet, who is fighting mouth cancer and a growing dependency on pain pills, sees her entire clan return home for the services, including her sister Mattie Fae Aiken and her husband Charles and their son "Little" Charles. Also arriving are Violet's three daughters: Barbara and her husband Bill, Ivy, and wild child Karen, who brings her fiancé Steve. As the clan bickers and jokes, old truths come to the surface, jealousies flourish, and eventually each of the characters confronts some past hurt or future fear.
"With a talent roster this large and a script this pointed, there's not much more director Wells can do than get out of the way - and indeed, that's what he does." -- Peter Howell, Toronto Star
