Winner of the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2011, The Descendants is a film that revolves around Matt King, a Honolulu-based lawyer and the sole trustee of a family trust that controls 25,000 acres of pristine land on the island of Kaua’i. We follow his many troubles, whether emotional, family or legal, while he is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future.

George Clooney’s terrific portrayal of Matt King showcases a wide range of emotion and expression, and is a big part of what makes the film in turns funny and moving.
Based on the novel of the same name by Kaui Hart Hemmings, The Descendants was released to positive reviews from critics. It received five Academy Award nominations, and more from other major film awards, including two Golden Globe wins.
