Meryl Streep Dishes August: Osage County on The View (VIDEO)

Can "the world's greatest living actress" pull off playing the mother-from-hell? Meryl Streep brings to life vicious, Oklahoma-bred matriarch Violet Weston in the Weinstein Company's adaptation of August: Osage County

Streep recently appeared on ABC Daytime's The View to discuss the big screen version of Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize-winning play. John Wells (ER, Shameless) directed the feature film, which also stars Julia Roberts, Juliette Lewis and Julianne Nicholson. Watch Streep reveal how the entire cast lived in a condo community in a small Oklahoma town during filming, after the jump!

    This film is absolutely AWFUL. It’s a screenplay written to showcase two major actresses Streep & Roberts, and the story comes in third place.

    I hate Hollywood productions like these because they are just so contrived.

    I’m the opposite, I loved the film, we went to see Christmas night and the performances of “written to showcase two major actresses Streep & Roberts” was great to watch together. To each of their own but we are going to see it again this coming weekend with gay couple friends of ours.
