august-osage-county-title-movie-logo august-osage-county-trailer-05102013-094815now we KNEW Ms. Meryl Streep was a genius in the acting profession world.

Julia-Roberts-August-Osage-County_TheWeinsteinCompany.jpg.600x900_q100but Ms. Julia Roberts was a revelation.

and MAGNIFICENT!

quick(ish) review?

we can’t really.

there were squabbles and fights and some Very Rude Language and a-n-g-e-r (expressed and/or otherwise corroding the stomach lining) and Family Trauma and slightly (ok) Tremendously Twisted Relations, slammed doors and funerals and Lots of lying in bed – with or without one’s beloved or with someone else’s beloved who was about-to-leave and yet – and yet…………it was compelling.

couldn’t take our eyes away from the Screen.

we felt the overbearing HEAT from the air-conditioned coolness of the cinema seat just pour sweat (a “glow” for the Ladies) down the audience’s back as we tried to crunch back in the seat to avoid the blows between the familial frights.

oh.

by the way.

the Props were stupendous.

especially the choice and placement of the (affectingly ordinary – J&J?) shampoo bottles on the windowsill as Big Pharma got flushed (you have to see it, the juxtaposition was genius – sort of fragile and oh-so-ordinary-yet-devilish).

the *only* bit we were confused by is why Sherlock was there when he wasn’t solving anything or being Julian Assange and shaming large corporations into revealing their ill-gotten gains but we digress.

bravo, Ms. J. Roberts.

MAGNIFICENT.
