August: Osage County Blu-ray

Posted March 4, 2014 12:58 PM by Webmaster

Anchor Bay EntertainmentAnchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company have officially announced the Blu-ray release of director John Wells' August: Osage County, starring Meryl Streep (in a Golden Globe and Academy Award-nominated Best Actress performance), Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Dermot Mulroney and Sam Shepard. The critically acclaimed drama arrives on Blu-ray on April 8th.

Streep and Roberts star in the darkly hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives converge when a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional mother who raised them. August: Osage County is based on the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama-winning play by Tracy Letts, who is also known as Andrew Lockhart on Showtime's Homeland. Director John Wells, best known as executive producer and showrunner of hit television series ER, The West Wing and Shameless, skillfully translates from stage to screen, leading an all-star cast.

August: Osage County is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Special features include:
  • Audio Commentary with Director John Wells and Cinematographer Adriano Goldman
  • Deleted Scenes with Commentary by Wells and Goldman
  • The Making of August: Osage County
  • Writing Featurette with Tracy Letts

This was my favorite movie of 2013. I loved the play, and I think the movie did justice to it. That cover art, however, does not.

All the actors nailed their roles. I thought Meryl Streep's performance was her strongest in years. I'll be getting this, but yeah, that cover art makes it look like the feel good movie it isn't.

Agree that the cover art is both ugly and misleading. They have been falsely advertising this movie from the beginning as a "feel good mother-daughter comedy" and it's not. Everyone is shocked when they see it and find out how dark it really is.

Where the heck did they get that image from for the cover art? Terrible
How on Earth was this not nominated for Best Picture?
Loved Cate in Blue Jasmine & Lupita in 12 Years, but Meryl and Julia were robbed by Oscar.
Anyway, DAY ONE!

I was really hoping they'd use the image of all of them at the dinner table for the cover art. This cover art is horrid.

Blind buying this on day one. Like all of you on here, I liked the original poster art better.

I loved this movie, Julia Roberts was outstanding. I just wish they kept the original poster art for the Blu-ray, but I guess they have to showcase the main stars.

I totally thought this was going to be a "chick flick" boy was I surprised! I actually enjoyed it more than my wife did! Very dark and original movie. Great writing and acting by the ENTIRE cast!

Holy Hell. The Weinstien's really topped themselves with one of the laziest piece of Bluray art I've seen in ages.

The movie is a bit of a watchable disaster already, but it's marketing wasn't too bad (see: Mother/Daughter fights poster). This is a whole new level of pulling the wool over our collective eyes.

Good work.

Yeah, I just loved how the trailer made this out to be a comedy when it was anything but. It's a very bleak and depressing film. Well done and great acting. But I have absolutely no desire or need to sit through it again.

Interesting how the cast list in the description left out Julianne Nicholson.

@nathanp: That's just great but I don't particularly care for "big cartoony transformer" movies any more than I like pity party movies based on contrived drama. The dysfunctional family genre was tired two decades ago.

Day one purchase, even with that cover. It's very misleading, as to what kind of movie this is. The poster (with Julia attacking Meryl) is much more honest.

I wish they used the original poster as the cover. It was so original.
