New Partnership: MyHeritage and ‘August: Osage County’ movie


We’re excited to tell you that we’ve partnered with American film studio, The Weinstein Company, for their new Facebook application, Discover Your Roots, created for the upcoming film “August: Osage County.”

The movie, August: Osage County, starring a first-rate cast: Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper, Ewan McGregor, Dermot Mulroney, Margo Martindale, Juliette Lewis and others, will be released nationwide on January 10, 2014! The movie was adapted from the original script of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, “August: Osage County,” written by Tracy Letts.

It is a hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house in which they grew up, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them.

The ‘Discover Your Roots’ app gives users the opportunity to discover their family history using MyHeritage technologies, and to get to know Weston family from the movie. Currently the app is only accessible in the US.
