Directed by: Alexander Payne
Plot: A land baron tries to re-connect with his two daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident.
Quick comment: This hawaiian folk song directed by the acclaimed Alexander Payne, manages to be light and warm without getting too corny. Far from the poignant humor of “about Schmidt” or the sweet emotions of “sideways”, “the descendants” still is an enjoyable movie.
Relevant Awards: Best motion picture and best actor at Golden Golbes, USA.
