By Rich Heldenfels Published: March 4, 2014

Early digital download window is March 28, other formats and platforms get it on April 8.

The official word: Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company announced today the Blu-ray™ combo pack, Blu-ray™ and DVD release of AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY starring Meryl Streep, nominated for a Golden Globe® for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy and Julia Roberts for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for their roles in AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY. Most recently, the film received two Academy Award® nominations including Meryl Streep for Best Actress and Julia Roberts for Best Supporting Actress.

AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, featuring an all-star cast, arrives at retail on April 8, 2014 for an SRP of $39.99 for the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack in Digital HD with UltraViolet™, $34.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $29.98 for the DVD.

Academy Award® Winners Meryl Streep* and Julia Roberts** star in the darkly hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives converge when a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional mother who raised them. AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY is based on the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama-winning play by Tracy Letts who is also known as Andrew Lockhart on Showtime’s “Homeland.” Director John Wells, best known as executive producer and showrunner of hit television series “ER,” “West Wing,” and “Shameless,” skillfully translates from stage to screen, leading an all-star cast that includes Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Margo Martindale, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Nicholson, Sam Shepard and Misty Upham.

In his review for The Wall Street Journal, Joe Morgenstern hails Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts’ performances as “marvelous,” while Los Angeles Daily News’ Bob Strauss proclaims, “everyone is at the top of their game.” Scott Foundas of Variety declares, “John Wells…does an impressive job the result is far more successful than any more stylized ‘cinematic’ treatment.”

*2011: Best Actress, The Iron Lady **2000: Best Actress, Erin Brockovich

AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY Special features include Feature and Deleted Scenes Commentary With Director John Wells and Cinematographer Adriano Goldman, The Making Of August: Osage County and a featurette On Writing With Tracy Letts.
