When I head to the theaters these days, it’s most likely to see the newest animated feature film. However, when my husband and I get to enjoy the occasional date night, a more grown-up movie is always welcome.
This Christmas, there is a movie coming to theaters that I really want to see– AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY.
From The Weinstein Company comes this star-studded film with favorites such as Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, and Abigail Breslin.
AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY tells the dark, hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. Letts’ play made its Broadway debut in December 2007 after premiering at Chicago’s legendary Steppenwolf Theatre earlier that year. It continued with a successful international run.
Just like the Weston Family, every family has a story. I find the story of family to be quite fascinating. There are several members of Darren’s family that have worked incredibly hard to record the genealogy of his family as intricately as possible. We’ve been able to learn where a vast majority of his ancestors came from. We’ve also met many of his relatives and have been able to visit the grave sites of several distant relatives.
The holidays are a prime time to make memories with those closest to you and create family history that can be shared years from now.
Today, I have a $25 Visa Gift Card to send to one lucky reader. You can use to check out AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY with your family when it comes out Christmas Day.
