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.
Based off a Broadway play by Tracy Letts, the film version includes a star-studded cast with Meryl Streep (nominated for an Academy Award for this role), Julia Roberts (also nominated for an Academy Award for this role), Chris Cooper, Dermot Mulroney, Ewan McGregor and more talented actors and actresses!
Since the movie deals with family (and it's many complex layers), The Weinstein Co. teamed up with with MyHeritage.com for the release of the movie help us learn more about the Weston family and your own family with a free premium membership! They also also launched an interactive Facebook app called Discover Your Roots where you can enter to win a $1,000 gift card for a family vacation!
