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! 3 Responses heatherwebber10010 December 30, 2013 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.

To each of their own but we are going to see it again this coming weekend with gay couple friends of ours. Log in to Reply Patchworks December 30, 2013 Meryl Streep is the Erika Slezak of Hollywood.
