Movie Review Monday: The Descendants
I totally forgot that I had “rented” this on iTunes when we were in Arizona in March. And the rental period is 30 days. So it literally expired the day we went on vacation. PREFECT! I will watch it on the plane.
From IMDB: With his wife Elizabeth on life support after a boating accident, Hawaiian land baron Matt King takes his daughters on a trip from Oahu to Kauai to confront the young real estate broker, who was having an affair with Elizabeth before her misfortune. Written by realndn06
I had heard about this movie and, of course, there was the Oscar buzz. And I absolutely liked it. It was another example of a great performance from George Clooney that he made look easy. Which is probably a small part of why he didn’t win. It was similar to his performance in Up In The Air. His daughters, portrayed by Shailene Woodley and Amara Miller, were amazing.
I enjoyed how the script tied together his personal tragedy, his impending land deal, his daughters, his cousins and the boyfriend. Definitely worth a watch.
My rating: 3.5 Gummies
