  • The acting styles of Streep and Roberts, both Golden Globe nominees, don’t exactly mesh, but they’re a hoot. show more

  • Family dysfunction has seldom been as flamboyant—or notable for its performances and flow of language—as it is in this screen version of the Tracy Letts play. show more

  • August: Osage County is the movie equivalent of Denny's Lumberjack Slam breakfast. If eggs, bacon, and toast aren't enough, throw in some ham, some sausage, pancakes, and hash browns. And then throw in more ham. show more
