The Descendants - Review

I went to the Odeon Cinema last night to watch the new George Clooney film, The Descendants.

Excellent performances all round from the cast in what is an enjoyable movie. A film about a Father who has an almost non-existent relationship with his two daughters. After an accident places his Wife in a coma it is up to Matt King (Clooney) to somehow connect with his kids and get them all through the traumatic situation.

Added to the event is the fact that is Wife was having an affair and was planning to leave him as well as his family Trust making a decision regarding a land sale that will net them millions.

The journey the family take as they try to make sense of their situation and find the family bond is a mix of tears & laughter and some absolute hilarity especially from the boyfriend Sid and the Father in Law Scott.

Will it win Oscars I am not sure but it is well worth a look if this is playing at your local cinema.
