The Descendants Alexander Payne's seriocomic The Descendants, an adaptation of the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, stars George Clooney as Matt King, a middle-age Hawaiian who runs a trust responsible for millions of dollars worth of untouched real estate that has been passed down to him and various cousins. He is preparing to sell the area, and make millions for everyone in the trust, when his wife suffers severe head trauma during a boat race. As he attempts to get her affairs in order, he learns that she had been having an affair. With his two daughters in tow, along with his oldest daughter's doofus boyfriend, Matt sets off to confront the man who made him a cuckold. Beau Bridges, Judy Greer, and Robert Forster co-star. The Descendants screened at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
Clooney true to form

Two big decisions that could forever affect your family’s future are ahead of you. One of them already made, the other still being debated. Then you’re hit with news you never saw coming and expected to deal with it quietly.
Matt King (played by George Clooney) is lawyer in Hawaii and, by virtue of his profession, the sole executor a family trust that controls 25,000 acres of untouched land on Kauai that they will lose relatively soon thanks to the rule against perpetuities. In addition, he is married with two daughters and their mother has been in a coma for six months since a boating accident and the terms of her living will dictate that she will soon be disconnected from life-support. His younger daughter, Scottie (played by Amara Miller), is unaware and is holding out hope that her mother will wake up. His seventeen year-old daughter, Alex (played by Shailene Woodley), is away at a reform school, of sorts, and stills bears a great deal of resentment for her mother as a result of being sent away. She claims the motivation for that decision was her discovery of her mother’s infidelity and says as much to her father. First rejecting the idea, Matt (Clooney) eventually accepts it and then decides to confront the other man in her life, bringing his daughters along under the pretense of a much needed respite.
Hawaiian music isn’t really my taste. Perhaps it’s the tone, perhaps it’s that I don’t speak and could never learn the language. On the other hand, it does set the mood beautifully as do the many shots showcasing Hawaii’s natural majesty. Clooney brings the conflict to life with a typically gripping performance and the cast all back him to varying degrees. I will say the part of Brian Speer, the man King (Clooney’s) wife was having an affair with was not very well-acted by Matthew Lillard but it’s a part with little screen time and few lines so it’s forgivable. See this movie.

One of George Clooney's Best!!!
Posted by: Falcon66 from: Easley,SC on
Some actors simply show up for the check. Some slide on image. George Clooney is always watchable; even when he seems to be coasting. Then he'll knock a curve over the fence. You see the star billing but he reminds the audience that behind the Ocean's is a fine actor. He does have an Oscar after all. Clooney disappears in The Descendants . His portrayal of a clueless man shocked into reality by tragedy ,forced to reconnect with fatherhood & family responsibilities, is faultless. Ranking with The Perfect Storm, The American, Michael Clayton & The Ides of March. He's given stellar support by Shailene Woodley (Divergent) as his oldest, resentful daughter who must verbally slap him with the fact that the life he thought he knew never existed. Beau Bridges is on hand a greedy brother. And Judy Greer is moving as a wife whose life becomes ensnared with Clooney's family. Whether in front of the camera or behind as director (Good Night & Good Luck) or producer (Argo) George Clooney rarely disappoints. As for that check? He earns it, then quietly recycles it into positive projects.

This is a great movie. It is touching, heartfelt and thought provoking. I was dragged to this movie in the theater by my wife. Time very well spent. I really really enjoyed it and even bought it for our home collection.

Best movie of 2012. Cast, video, and audio, excellent.. Plot, very realistic, and background like Michner's "Hawaii". Clooney's best movie so far.

Dont' make the same mistake I did. Rent it first. Don't pay top dollar for it. Mostly a boring movie.

Story line rather depressing.
Posted by: muddauber from: Upstate New York on
The cheating spouse theme is getting rather old! This is the second of such movies that George Clooney has starred in the last few years. I thought that the two actresses who played his daughters did a great job of acting. Especially the girl that played the eldest daughter. The scenery in Hawaii made the movie. Rate it 3.5... Not sure that I would give it a recommendation.

Not a big Clooney "the actor" fan. The plot was interesting. Try to imagine his character's position. Tough. Just thought it was ok though. Buy when price drops.

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. It is boring and Clooney's performance was just ok. He hasn't given a worthy performance since 97 Out of Sight. He got an Oscar nomination for acting on the same level as the other actor's in the movie. Seriously? Don't waste your time. It's better to spend 2 hours mowing the lawn instead of sitting thru this. I'm not sure what the other guy was watching who left a review before me.

I finally got around to watching The Descendants about a week ago. I was pleasantly surprised by how deep this film is. It's got so many different things going on and takes the main characters through a myriad of different emotions. I now understand why Payne, Rash & Faxon won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
