The film has had varying degrees of Oscar buzz since the first trailer debuted — horse-race chatter that irritates Letts. It involves a lot of collaboration. Violet is suffering from mouth cancer and constantly self-medicating, and Barbara is facing the end of her marriage — yet they may be the least-suffering members of the Weston clan. But August: Osage County remains unscarred onscreen. Letts concedes that he was fighting for changes in Toronto — "Material that I felt still had a place in the work, some things I felt were screwy about the ending" — but insists that talk about a potential new ending was overblown.

How long does the last shot go on for? Is that the last shot? When do the credits start? When does the music start? Is that the music? Nobody was ever arguing to give us a smiley ending. It would be disastrous if they did. Driving alongside her estranged husband early in the film, Barbara wonders aloud who decided to settle in this "flat, hot nothing".

Later in the film, Barbara is driving with her mother down a similarly bleak highway when Violet suddenly escapes, running off into a hayfield with Barbara in hot pursuit. Letts identifies that scene as one of his favourites. That they were representativeof the country on some level. I always liked what that word evoked. Believe me, the book and the movie are really important to me and the people where I come from.

But it deserves revisitation. His acceptance speech from that night is an enormous contrast to the wry Osage County one — he seems genuinely overwhelmed and emotional.
