Watch: The Descendants

Around November and December, movies with Oscar potential are usually cemented and that’s when I make my list of films to watch before award season kicks in. One movie last year that made the cut was “The Descendants”. The film stars George Clooney as a land baron who is facing several difficulties in his life all at once: his wife is severely injured in a boating accident, he has to decide on whether to sell land that has been in his family for over hundred years in Hawaii, and trying to reconnect with his daughters. This movie is a breath of fresh air that realistically blends comedy and drama with each scene. The acting is superb and the Oscar for its screenplay is well deserved. Keep your ears open for its laid-back Hawaiian soundtrack.It’s also nice to see Shailene Woodley in a role that doesn’t require her to use the word, “sex” three times in one sentence. I highly recommend this movie.
