Meryl Streep And Julia Roberts Go Head-To-Head In A New Movie

3They are Oscar wining actresses who have both played a slew of feisty characters in a variety of films.
So it’s no surprise that sparks fly when Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts go head to head in their new film drama. A trailer for the movie, ‘August: Osage County’ shows the women engaging in several dramatic scenes.
Julia plays Barbara Weston, daughter of Violet, the cancer-stricken sharp-tongued family matriarch, played by Meryl. Co-produced by George Clooney and Grant Heslov, the new trailer features the actresses sparring, in with one piece of dinner table footage especially dramatic.
The drama is based on the Pulitzer-Prize winning play by Tracy Letts and made its Broadway debut in 2007. It revolves around a dysfunctional family who gather together in Oklahoma after the suicide of family patriarch, Beverly.
Along with star names Streep and Roberts, the film features a star-studded cast including Sam Shepard, Chris Cooper, Ewan McGregor, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch and Juliette Lewis. The dark dramedy, directed by John Wells, is slated for release on November 8, putting it in direct contention for awards season.
Movie goers can expect some dark undertones, with the film’s tagline reading: ‘Misery Loves Family.’
