Julia Roberts http://kmuw.org en Movie Review: Characters In 'August: Osage County' Are Very Human and Never Dull http://kmuw.org/post/movie-review-characters-august-osage-county-are-very-human-and-never-dull <p></p><p><i>August: Osage County</i> suffers only from too-close similarity to an all-time classic, Eugene O’Neill’s <i>Long Day’s Journey into Night</i>, filmed by director Sidney Lumet with Ralph Richardson and Katharine Hepburn in 1962.</p><p>Again we have the story of a disharmonious family revealing its emotional strains during a short reunion, with startling revelations of character but no real plot, made notable by excellent writing and marvelous acting, with this time a touch of unnecessary melodrama toward the end.</p> Thu, 23 Jan 2014 16:24:33 +0000 Jim Erickson 29249 at http://kmuw.org Movie Review: Characters In 'August: Osage County' Are Very Human and Never Dull
