I have to say I honestly didn't know anything about this movie before seeing it out on DVD. It has an amazing cast and the premise seems interesting. I always like a good dysfunctional family movie so I decided to check it out. The acting is quite amazing and it's interesting to see Ewan McGregor and Benedict Cumberbatch show how well they can portray American characters. There are some great mome... read more

I saw the play some years ago in spanish in Lima, and I find intact the universe, the dramatic structure, the distribution of crisis and tense speeches. Wells is very loyal to Letts ant Letts to his play. The Oklahoma plains are the bonus.

The acting in this one is superb, and there are some really powerful lines but as a whole the plot just seems pointless. It's a quite depressing movie. It's people hurting eachother over and over again. It pictures broken relationships but without the hope that they will ever be fixed, as it is clear that each character will persist in their selfishness. No one even dreams of changing and therefor... read more

An average movie

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a fine cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, eventually, I wasn’t really convinced by the damned thing to be honest. Basically, even though the material definitely had some potential, the main issue was that there was just too much stuff going on, too many characters involved in too many sub-plots. Take Meryl Streep’s character for example, her husband just killed himself, she had cancer, she was a drug addict and she had a mean and vicious temper. That was already a lot to deal with but she also had one sister and three daughters and they all had some baggage, skeletons in the closet or other major issues to deal with. In my opinion, it would have worked better if Violet only had one daughter” read more

1 - Benedict Cumberbatch! (15 movies items)

" I just felt so bad for his character in this movie. I thought his relationship and love for his girl friend was too precious. They think they are cousins. We find out in the end that she's his half sister and that doesn't go over very well. IMO it's not the end of the world. They can still be close, have a life together. They can even move away from their family and change their names. I have a very skewed moral system. Let them be together. Over all this movie was depressing and hard"
