My Car's Name is Fern

I take car naming very seriously.

Why I love Scotty Bradley

August: Osage County

Meryl Streep August: Osage County

Definitely among the finalists on my list for Best Picture. I'm giving it 5 stars.

Promos for the film refer to it as a "hilarious, dark comedy", well don't be fooled. Yes, you will laugh, but this is not a comedy nor is it hilarious. Ironic, yes; sardonic, yes; hilarious, no.
