From Alexander Payne, the creator of the Oscar-winning Sideways.
The Descendants is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki.
The event leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family’s land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries.
“A drama of unusual nuance. It lingers, spawns thoughts, connections, as a great film ought” – Catherine Shoard, The Guardian
