‘August: Osage County’ (2013)

The strongest Oklahoma connection is Tulsa native and Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts, who wrote the screenplay based on his play about the ultimate dysfunctional Oklahoma family. That writing attracted a cast for the ages: Oscar winners Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and Chris Cooper, as well as Benedict Cumberbatch, Sam Shepard, Abigail Breslin, Margo Martindale, Ewan McGregor and Dermot Mulroney. You can’t visit the “house” in which filming took place in northern Osage County where the family did verbal and physical battle, but scenes were also shot in downtown Pawhuska and Barnsdall, and the locals would be happy to show you where.
