Last night there was a live Q&A after a SAG screening for August: Osage County in New York which included Meryl, director John Wells, screenwriter Tracy Letts and several other members of the cast. I was fortunate enough to be able to watch it live last night. Check it out:
I like that Meryl was able to speak a bit about her character Violet, in particular how "theatrical" she sees this woman. Some of the negative reviews Meryl is getting complain that she's "over the top" in her portrayal. It was nice to see Meryl explain (not that I needed convincing) that her character was prone to theatrics.
Two additional interviews have been posted to You Tube. The first is only on August: Osage County. The second includes a bit on her recent wrapping of Into the Woods in London, in which she discusses the new song that Stephen Sondheim had written specifically for her as the Witch.
