The Descendants

The Descendants Release Date: November 18, 2011

A baron tries to re-connect with his two daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident.

From the creator of the Oscar-winning Sideways, set in Hawaii, the movie The Descendants is a sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant journey for Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to reexamine 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.

From the director of Election (1999), About Schmidt (2002), Sideways (2004) and Nebraska (2013).
