While I admired individual performances, I thought the Abscam movie had a slow first hour before pulling off a strong finish. “August: Osage County,” too, offered heaps of fine acting. But it felt drained of the biting family-dysfunction humor I admired so much in the Omaha Community Playhouse production 16 months ago.
