I find it strange that this film is getting mis-categorized as a "comedy."
I think all the trailers represented it as laid back and funny, but I can assure you, it is the complete opposite. August: Osage County does not have a very strong plot line, but because of the actors and their flawless performances there is a dramatic intensity to be seen with every moment of the 2 hours you will be drawn into the lives of these people. INCREDIBLE CONVINCING performances by Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, as well as great support from every other cast member. The unraveling of August: Osage County is that there may not be resolution from dysfunction, sometimes the truth hurts.
