Matt King is an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who 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. (Fox Searchlight)

"A pitch-perfect movie that threads a microscopically tiny needle between high comedy and devastating drama."
- Washington Post, Ann Hornaday
"Rarely has a contemporary movie taken in so much life and revealed it with such depth of feeling."
- Wall Street Journal, Joe Morgenstern
"Clooney has never been better, subtler, more deeply rooted in a performance than he is in The Descendants. And he's funny, too."
- Philadelphia Inquirer, Steven Rea
"To call The Descendants perfect would be a kind of insult, a betrayal of its commitment to, and celebration of, human imperfection. Its flaws are impossible to distinguish from its pleasures."
- The New York Times, A.O. Scott
"Payne's low-key approach only deepens the film's intimate power. Want a movie you can really connect with? The Descendants is damn near perfect."
- Rolling Stone, Peter Travers
