Entertaining Platt: The Descendants (2011)

September 4, 2012 § 1 Comment

So, I finally saw The Descendants and I have to say, for an Oscar-nominated best picture, it sure is a decent Lifetime made-for-TV movie.

The only reason I could justify watching it on the big screen would be the gorgeous Hawaiian vistas. It’s a great travel brochure writ large. Beyond those landscape shots, it’s really just a well-choreographed family melodrama.

George Clooney’s performance is pretty much like many other “Clooney being serious” performances. The woman who plays his cheating comatose wife really has a harder acting job in her role.
