The death and funeral of their father brings three sisters to the home of their mother, Violet (Meryl Streep), an acid-tongued, pill-popping cancer patient. Daughters Barbara (Julia Roberts), Karen (Juliette Lewis) and Ivy (Julianne Nicholson) — along with their significant others and various other kin — take the full brunt of their dysfunctional matriarch’s venom, for Violet tells every one of them exactly what she thinks of them. Based on the play by Tracy Letts.
Misery loves family.
