I wasn’t exactly impressed with the last George Clooney film I saw (The American), though he has done some fantastic work in the past, so maybe this next one, The Descendants, will be a return to form?
So here’s the lowdown.
The film is going on release in Ireland and the UK in January 2012 and stars George Clooney, Judy Greer, Beau Bridges, Matthew Lillard, Robert Forster, Shailene Woodley, Kaleigh Kennedy, Mary Birdsong, Nick Krause. It’s directed by Alexander Payne (Sideways)
Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, 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.
