In 1980s New York, a writer (Mark Ruffalo) and his friends join forces to expose the truth about the emerging AIDs crisis to both the government and the gay community.
The death and funeral of their father brings three sisters to the home of their mother, Violet (Meryl Streep), an acid-tongued, pill-popping cancer patient. Daughters Barbara (Julia Roberts), Karen (Juliette Lewis) and Ivy (Julianne Nicholson) -- along with their significant others and various other kin -- take the full brunt of their dysfunctional matriarch's venom, for Violet tells every one of them exactly what she thinks of them. Based on the play by Tracy Letts.
Claire Stenwick (Julia Roberts) and Ray Koval (Clive Owen) are former government operatives who are now collecting big paychecks from rival companies as corporate spies. Their latest mission is to grab the formula for a product that will earn a fortune for whichever company patents it first. The stakes grow even higher than expected when Claire and Ray become embroiled in a passionate, clandestine affair, though neither one can decide how far to trust the other.
