“The Descendants” is a beautiful movie.
It’s a shoo-in for Academy Award nominations in several categories, including Best Director and Best Picture. If there’s any justice, Shailene Woodley gets a nod for her incredible work here, and there may even be a nom in George Clooney’s future for it.
It’s laugh out loud funny at several points, touching in numerous ways, occasionally thought-provoking, and I’m not gonna lie, there were a couple of moments when I teared up a bit. It’s a heart warming movie, and genuinely funny.
It’s one of the best films I’ve seen this year with ease.
