About the Role: Julia Roberts plays Barbara Weston, the eldest daughter of the Weston family. She’s the controlling member of the family, who struggles to relinquish that control even if it could save her marriage. Despite wanting to save her marriage, she and her husband Bill are struggling to make things work and it’s just one of the secrets that comes out during the visit to Osage County.

Simply the Best: In a world with secrets and lies, it can make you wonder why you’d want to watch something with all that for fun. Well, August: Osage County brings you more than just secrets and lies. Julie Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Meryl Streep, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch and more come together for an amazingly funny movie about a dysfunctional family, who are only back in the same county because of the death of a family member.

You’ll certainly learn the less of not going searching for information when someone dies. I learned that lesson the hard way, along with many others I know, so if only this movie came out sooner! It offers a comedic twist, as the scandals and secrets come out one by one. Nobody is who you think they are.
