Default 'August: Osage County' - High-Def Digest Review

David Krauss has reviewed 'August: Osage County'. He says a first rate cast helps to make this an absorbing comedy-drama. The Blu-ray arrives with strong video and audio transfers, as well as a nice array of supplements. Recommended.

Perhaps the most misleading Blu-ray/DVD cover art ever created.

August: Osage County is the story of a bunch of addicts who hate each other. Meryl plays a miserable, emotionally manipulative alcoholic. Roberts plays her eldest daughter. After one too many slurred insults, mother and daughter end up:



which would've been a much better cover.

Perfectly explained by Super-VHS. Yeah, the cover makes it look like an idyllic family drama. When in fact this is the sorriest bunch of self-loathing ingrates you're likely to meet in a movie.

I can't imagine a movie I am more likely NOT to see. A bunch of unlikable, obnoxious women screaming at each other? No thanks.
