After the bread has been broken, the presents have been opened and the family has all gone home, we love to hit the movies for some extra family time. If you like to do the same, consider checking out the new film, “August: Osage County,” that hits theaters this holiday season in select cities on Wednesday, December 25th (everywhere in January) and includes a star-studded cast such as Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Ewan McGregor and many more!
AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY 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.
This movie talks about togetherness and the importance of taking the time to be with your family and friends, especially around the Holidays. You are sure to get wrapped up in the story of the Weston family so fortunately, The Weinstein Co. has teamed up with MyHeritage.com for the release of August: Osage County to help you learn more about the Weston family and your own family with a free premium membership!
I have done a little bit of work on our own family tree and I find it quite fascinating! I especially love looking at old pictures to get a glimpse of life in the past and I am trying to instill the same passion for learning in my own children. In order to get started, I simply downloaded the printable family tree and taught the kids the very beginning of their own piece of history.
