The Descendants - Movie Synopsis & Plot

From Alexander Payne, the creator of the Oscar-winning SIDEWAYS, set in Hawaii, THE DESCENDANTS is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George 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.

MOVIE REVIEW

Alexander Payne's last movie was 2004's Oscar-winning dramedy Sideways, which means audiences should pay attention to his newest release The Descendants, an alluring and engaging drama that maneuvers the fine line between life's sadness and humor.
