Review of 'The Descendants' - pictured - George Clooney, Shailene Woodley and Nick KrauseA movie review of The Descendants, from Brusimm.

The Oscar winning movie, The Descendants, stars George Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Amara Miller, Nick Krause and is directed by Alexander Payne (Cedar Rapids, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, The Savages).  Payne also co-wrote the screenplay and co-produced.

Actually, in addition to the Oscar, The Descendants has won 40+ other awards from various sources and in my mind, they’re all deserved wins.

The movie runs 115 minutes and is rated R.

This movie focuses on a man (Clooney) who has the burden of representing his family on his shoulders as he deals with a huge, multi-million dollar trust land sale while dealing with his wife being in a coma after a boating accident.
