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

If you loved this, you should check out his newest film, Nebraska; it's brilliant, and even slightly better. But this film was brilliant.

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. 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 some of the best written characters I have seen lately. The beginning monolog also stroke a personal chord in the sense that my wife has been really sick for about 2 years now and I had about the same internal monologs as our relantionship was already pretty chaotic even before she got some health issues and even more afterwards. Of course, I didn’t went through the rest of the story myself but” read more
