Night out with August: Osage County (and a Giveaway!)

Night OUt with Osage County

As parents it can be challenging to have an adult night-out. One of our favorite things to do without the kids is go to the movies, and this is a bonus when there are stimulating and interesting movies to see. One film we are really excited to see is August: Osage County, a film that 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.
