August Osage County Full Movie
August: Osage County is a 2013 American black comedy-drama film written by Tracy Letts and based on his Pulitzer Prize–winning play by the same name. The film is directed by John Wells and produced by George Clooney, Jean Doumanian, Grant Heslov, Steve Traxler, and Bob and Harvey Weinstein. The ensemble cast is led by Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.
The title designates place and location: an unusually hot August in a rural area outside Pawhuska, Oklahoma. Beverly Weston (Sam Shepard), a once-noted, alcoholic poet, interviews and hires a young native American woman Johnna (Misty Upham) as a live-in cook and caregiver for his strong-willed and contentious wife Violet (Meryl Streep), who is suffering from mouth cancer and addiction to narcotics. Shortly after this, he disappears from the house, and Violet calls her sister and daughters for support. Her sister Mattie Fae (Margo Martindale) arrives with husband Charles Aiken (Chris Cooper). Her youngest daughter Ivy (Julianne Nicholson) is single and the only one living locally; Barbara (Julia Roberts), her oldest, who has inherited her mother’s strong will, arrives from Colorado with her husband Bill (Ewan McGregor) and 14-year-old daughter Jean (Abigail Breslin). Barbara and Bill are separated and having marriage difficulties, but they put up a united front for Violet. Finally, middle daughter Karen (Juliette Lewis) arrives with the latest in a string of boyfriends, Steve Heidebrecht (Dermot Mulroney), a sleazy Florida businessman whom she introduces as her fiancé.
After five days, the sheriff shows up with the news that Beverly took his boat out on the lake and has drowned. Barbara identifies the body and makes the funeral arrangements. Mattie Fae’s and Charles’ shy, awkward son “Little Charles” (Benedict Cumberbatch), misses the funeral because he overslept, and is met at the bus station by his father. Charles loves Little Charles, though Mattie constantly belittles her son’s intelligence and calls him a loser. Ivy confides to Barbara that she is in love with Little Charles, and she cannot have children because she has had a hysterectomy.
The family sits down to an awkward dinner after the funeral, fueled by Violet’s brutally honest “truth telling” which results in Barbara jumping on her mother. She decides she has had enough of the drug addiction, and confiscates all her pills. Later, after Violet has had a chance to sober up, she has a tender moment with her daughters, and reveals that her own mother had a cruel streak. Steve has been attempting to seduce Jean by plying her with marijuana; Johnna catches him and goes after him with a shovel, and Barbara smacks Jean. This impells Bill to take Jean back to Colorado, leaving Barbara. It is now clear that they are headed for divorce. Karen also leaves with Steve.
As Little Charles sings Ivy a song he has written for her, Mattie Fae walks in and berates him. This exhausts Charles’ patience with his wife’s lack of love and compassion for her son, and he angrily tells her he is taking Little Charles and leaving, with or without her. Mattie reveals to Barbara that she had an affair with Beverly, and Little Charles is in fact his son. Barbara promises to try to discourage Ivy from marrying Little Charles, while not revealing the secret.
Later, Ivy tries to tell her mother about her love for Little Charles. Violet, who has hidden pills Barbara wasn’t able to find, is high again and blurts out that she has known all along that he is Beverly’s son. This drives Ivy to leave, angrily promising never to return. In the last angry confrontation between Violet and Barbara, Violet admits she was contacted by Beverly, but did nothing to help him until after she removed money out the couple’s joint safety deposit box, by which time it was too late. This is the last straw for Barbara, who leaves in a pickup truck left outside. Violet is left with only Johnna.
