The Descendants has no moment that you can’t predict coming up soon, but that matters very little in the grand scheme of things. When something is so well-written, acted, directed, and put together you can easily forgive the fact that you know exactly how it will all end. As it moves along to the resolutions we know are coming it strikes some unique tones and creates true moments filled with hum... read more

A very heartfelt and thought-provoking drama.

As you will very easily recognise from the theatrical trailer as well when watching the feature film itself, The Descendants really is your typical Hollywood bait as it consists of heart-breaking and thought-provoking emotion, personal connections between characters, some light-hearted humour and the wide variety of shots featuring beautiful landscapes. Plus, the fact that it stars a Hollywood gem... read more

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Personally, I wonder why it took Alexander Payne 7 years to finally come up with a new director effort. Anyway, it was definitely worth the wait, that’s for sure. Indeed, I thought it was a very good drama with a perfect pace (probably the best directing by Payne so far) , some more than solid performances and... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: April (35 movies items)

"April 3 "I don't want my daughters growing up entitled and spoiled. And I agree with my father - you give your children enough money to do something but not enough to do nothing." Just like Nebraska this is another Alexander Payne film that failed to engage me, although this one is better than the latter movie. This one did have it's moments of greatness and it is funny at times, but I found myself caring more for the kids than I did for George Clooney's character who I didn't really like th"

" 'The Descendants' is an intelligently scripted film with great acting from the cast including Shailene Woodley, Beau Bridges, Judy Greer, Matthew Lillard, Robert Forster and of course George Clooney. The direction by Alexander Payne is brilliant and the music is beautiful! A great drama!"

An inspiring, emotional, heart-breaking drama

“George Clooney plays land baron Matt King in 'The Descendants', an inspiring, emotional, heart-breaking drama. Matt tries to reconcile with his daughters after his wife is injured in a boat accident! And George Clooney plays the character ever so well!
