Isn’t it always great to see your family? Don’t you just want to give your parents a call right now and hear what they’ve been up to and also hear at the same time about how you never call? Mmm, guilt.

Take a little solace in the fact that whatever you and I are dealing with back at the ranch isn’t as bad as the Weston family’s situation in John WellsAugust: Osage County. The adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play isn’t hitting theaters until December 25th, but it’s gaining steady buzz for the awards season track up until its premiere.


Though a couple trailers have already told us what to expect, the film’s poster has now surfaced and it’s a beauty to behold. Gaze upon the Westons in all of their glory (shame?) as they brawl on the living room floor in the midst of some kind of petty battle. Whatever Meryl Streep said to Julia Roberts to ignite that kind of WWE smackdown…she probably deserved it.

Special recognition goes to Ewan McGregor for half-heartedly attempting to pull them apart. He knows that this is a special kind of moment you don’t get to experience very often. In a film with the tagline “Misery loves family,” we can only hope that there’s so much more where this came from.
