Alexander Payne’s THE DESCENDANTS gets a new trailer
Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the second trailer for director Alexander Payne’s THE DESCENDANTS. The film is based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, and stars George Clooney as “an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-establish his relationship with his daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki.” The film also stars Judy Greer, Beau Bridges, Matthew Lillard, Robert Forster, Shailene Woodley, Mary Birdsong, Nick Krause and Amara Miller.
THE DESCENDANTS is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki. The event leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family’s land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries.
My favorite Payne film so far has been ELECTION, and I love what I see so far here. Clooney looks to have turned in another dramatic performance in this film. The film hits theaters on Novemeber 18th. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
