It's incredible.

You will never forget this movie. Win lose, or draw. If Meryl Streep doesn't deserve an Academy Award for this performance, no one did, ever. Ever.

Bad things happening to bad people

Violet is a bitter woman, unhappily married with Beverly and mother of three daughters: Barbara, Ivy and Karen. Barbara's marriage with Bill is on the rocks, Ivy is a spinster and Karen changes frequently boyfriend. The daughters and Violet's deceitful sister Mattie Fae, congregate for Beverly's funeral and a final family showdown.

Streep and Roberts, as mother Violet and daughter Barbara, give vanity-free performances in this disturbing tale of a dysfunctional family. However, that is not quite enough to make watching this movie a pleasant experience.

Streep is great, but some of her speeches are too staged. For instance, the story about her boots is moving, but it is delivered like an actress would, with a lot of flourishing and pauses for maximum effect, which spoils the harshness of the events narrated.

Jean, Barbara's teenage daughter is the stereotypical American young woman: an obnoxious, self-centered bitch, who hates her mother for unidentified reasons. Her scene with randy Steve is both puzzling and annoying: the much older fiancé of aunt Karen gives Jean some grass to smoke, about which she has no problem, then asks her to show him her tits - also no problem for Jean.

But when their sleazy flirtation is interrupted, Jean blames her mother and so does dad Bill. I wonder why was Barbara to be blamed: for Jean's slutty behavior or for Steve's lecherous one?

The events narrated take place during the hot month of August, but all characters wear too many clothes. In a hot summer morning nobody could (and would) wear a robe over a long-sleeved shirt … and without the slight perspiration, like Barbara.

The incestuous angle was maybe a little too much, considering the conflicted and fractured relationships in the family.

Finally, it was sad to see Shepard looking already so frail. Not a pleasant experience and I would not watch this again.

loved it

Just watched this and found myself laughing out loud throughout the movie. There is some great acting here by Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts as well as the rest of the cast. Never a dull moment in this movie which kept my interest and attention throughout. To tell the truth I watched it because I wanted to see Misty Upham; turned out she had a small part though she played it well. Was surprised by how awesome Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts and the rest of the cast were, think this movie should have won more awards than it did.
