Streep, Roberts Do Battle In Dysfunction Drama 'August: Osage County'
Description:Right around Christmas, arguably the high season for family dysfunction, moviegoers will get a chance to compare their clans with the calamitous Westons of Oklahoma in the drama "August: Osage County." They may be thankful they don't have a mother like Violet, Meryl Streep's pill-popping, viper-tongued matriarch. Or they may find shades of themselves in Barb, Julia Roberts's bitter daughter who bristles at Violet's barbs and wallows in a world of unfulfilled promise.(0:35)
