August - Osage County
August: Osage County is the film adaptation of Tracy Lett's Pulizter-winning play of the same name which was nominated for two Oscars. Violet Weston is a pill-popping matriarch in one of the most dysfunctional families in the South. One night, Beverly, Violet's husband since 30 years disappears mysteriously without a trace. Beverly's disappearance causes the three daughters of the couple to return to their childhood home together with their families, to comfort their mother and help find out what happened to their father. As in most families, the home brings out the best and worst of all, and the daughters fall back into their old roles in the unforgivable family hierarchy - in the midst of the unforgiving August heat. Nöjesguiden's Isabelle Espinoza gives it the highest rating and writes that: "What really sets the mark and brings the film to historically memorable levels is the acting, which is invaluable well done from the beginning to the bitter end.
