4th May 2014

Following the disappearance of their father Beverly (Sam Shepard, 'Ruffian'), the Weston clan descends upon the Midwestern family home to help find him. This will not be an easy family reunion – and not just because of Beverly’s mysterious vanishing. His estranged daughters have been living divergent lives and are returning to more than the isolated home they grew up in: they are back to face the iron-fisted matriarch (Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, 'The Iron Lady') who raised them.

Showcasing the indomitable talent of Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts ('Erin Brockovich') in Academy Award-nominated performances and supported by an exceptional A-list cast including Ewan McGregor ('Salmon Fishing In The Yemen'), Juliette Lewis ('Conviction') and Abigail Breslin ('Little Miss Sunshine'), this is an ensemble drama of the highest order.

Tracy Letts has adapted his Pulitzer Prize® winning play and created a powerful, mesmerising film, laced with black humour, jaw-dropping dialogue and unforgettable scenes.
