Agosto Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

August: Osage County is a 2013 American tragicomedy film directed by John Wells. It was written by Tracy Letts and based on his Pulitzer Prize-winning eponymous 2007 play. It is produced by George Clooney, Grant Heslov, Jean Doumanian, and Steve Traxler.

The film stars an ensemble cast consisting of Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Margo Martindale, Dermot Mulroney, and Julianne Nicholson as a dysfunctional family that reunites into the familial house when their patriarch (Sam Shepard) suddenly disappears.

August: Osage County premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2013, and was released in the United States on December 27, 2013. A modest commercial success, the film received mixed reviews from critics. While much praise was given to the cast, the screenplay was praised by some and seen by others as too dark and lacking in humor. For their performances in the film, Streep and Roberts received Oscar nominations for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively.

A member of the audience share some thought about the adaptación of the novel August: Osage County, ¨There was nothing I could (or did) take home from this movie except for a strong feeling that this movie was about academy awards. More specifically, as an academy award vehicle for Meryl Streep.

However, I thought her usually good acting had been transformed into a caricature of acting in that she overdid to the point of absurdity. A Virginia Wolf on steroids. Nevertheless, concerning the awards, I was correct, checking into reviews etc regarding this movie, I see the word award attached to it at every turn. Sadly and unbelievably predictable. What a disappointment! This film was billed as a comedy but aside from a few and forced awkward laughs in response to awkward moments, there was nothing fun or funny about this movie. The only plot I could find in this episodic over-dramatic and poorly staged soap opera was the plot to rope people into see it using a star-filled cast and the promise of laughs. Synonyms for this movie include (but are not limited to): superficial, contrived, bleak, unbelievable, regrettable, gratuitous, insulting, unmemorable , depressing, and rip-off. Meryl Streep: I am embarrassed for you. That is, unless you are laughing your way to another academy award. Which you very well might be. But with that many suckers who needs a candy store?¨

Cashier of Burlingston Coat Factory (Former Employee) says

"a typical day at work was meet people of different country. my co-worker was fun and good attitude. Cons: bad bonus"

Former Employee - Sales Associate says

"I worked at Agosto full-time for more than a year Cons: The employees are peculiarly immature and insulated from each other. Big egos, little cooperation or coordination. Maybe a reflection of management not working together to move ahead. Maybe it's the lack of diversity."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at Agosto full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Good luck getting a raise. Good luck getting a bonus aside from some Amazon giftcards every year. Good luck scheduling anything. Good luck getting out of meetings you don't need to be at ever. Good luck getting through to your coworkers that you need help and that they should help you. Good luck getting out of your position to move forward. Good luck getting past management for any ideas. Good luck if you're on the receiving end of HR. Good luck if you upset anyone in the "inner circle". Good luck if you want to get promoted."

says

"I worked at Agosto Cons: Lack of objectivity when it comes to treatment of certain employees"
