Family, is crazy and insane and we don’t get to pick them. Going back for holidays, weddings or a funeral can be uncomfortable and dreary but sometimes it does bring us closer despite the stress. It’s so important to spend time with your loved ones because you never know when it will be your last one. I lost my grandmother this past year and it was tough but our family is so much closer now. I’ve been through holidays, a wedding and a funeral this past year so I can completely relate to the Movie August Osage County coming out In select cities on Christmas Day and everywhere January!
I know that in the movie, they are all brought back together for a loss, and it’s the complications of family that make this movie so real and uncomfortable and humorous. I’m excited for it to come out and see the amazing line up of actors that I love. It includes a star-studded cast such as Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Ewan McGregor and many more and it reminds us that even though it’s hard spending time with family is so so important.
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. After making its Broadway debut in December 2007 and premiering at Chicago’s legendary Steppenwolf Theatre, it continued with a successful international run.
Some families do not know where they originate from and this will give them the opportunity to discover their roots and it’s a fun interactive way to spend quality time with loved ones and share family history with their children. I’m lucky enough to know where I come from on one side of my family, my grandmother that passed. She was in love with genealogy and took it back so very far.
