The Descendants Trailer 2
From Alexander Payne, the creator of the Oscar-winning SIDEWAYS, set in Hawaii, 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.
And the trailer:
Eh. Look at me! I'm serious and quirky! The voice over just makes me argumentative instead of selling me on the film. Does anyone actually think people in Hawaii live in a problem-free paradise? It's too green. That probably means there are dinosaurs just waiting to eat quirky characters.
