With an astonishing 23 Oscar nominations between them, the cast of this dark comedy drama is a powerhouse of acting talent. Adapted from the Pulitzer-winning play of the same name, Meryl Streep delivers a barn-storming performance as Violet, the mouthy matriarch of the extended Weston family. Coming together for the funeral of Violet’s husband Beverley, simmering family tensions are brought to the fore as Violet’s relationships with her three daughters reach breaking point, and their significant others try to avoid getting caught in the cross fire.
