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

A very good movie

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.

“It was a very beautiful and subtle performance from Clooney, nonetheless it was Shailene Woodley that caught my eyes, she performed a real crooked lov”

"02.05.2015 Jälleen yksi hyvä mustalla huumorilla tahditettu komedia Paynelta. Havajin maisemat olivat varsin kliffoja."

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.
