August: Osage County - This is the Netflix synopsis:
"When their father disappears, three strong-willed women return to their childhood home and to their equally strong-willed mother. As they search for their patriarch, the dysfunctional family members wind up facing difficult truths about themselves."
I read "strong-willed", and I think I incorrectly interpreted it as "strong". I expected to like these women, but they seemed to just blindly head down their current path without any introspection. The acting was very good. I sure never expected to see Benedict Cumberbatch pop up with a southern accent! It was definitely a "snapshot" movie. You get to see an excerpt from the lives of these people, and that's it. It left the stories hanging, and in this particular film I would have liked to see a bit more resolution.
