Watch the First Trailer for ‘August: Osage County’

Behold, the first trailer for the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer-winning play, August: Osage County. Boasting an impressive cast of A-listers like Meryl Streep, Sam Shepard, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbach, and Juliette Lewis, the film, at least according to the trailer, appears to take a very heavy-handed look at how a family sticks together (whereas the three-hour play mostly focused on a family on the brink of falling apart). “Life is very long,” says a weary Sam Shepard in the trailer’s opening moments. This movie will be, too.
