Opening Tomorrow In Cinemas – The Descendants

Alexander Payne returns with Geroge Clooney (whose favourite to take Oscar for Best Actor) is this dramedy that is winning rave reviews everywhere.

Matt King (George Clooney) is 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. The trust will expire in seven years because of the rule against perpetuities, so the King family has decided to sell the land to Kaua’i native Don Holitzer for development. Just before family members are ready to formally endorse the deal, which Matt favors, a boating accident near Waikiki renders Matt’s wife, Elizabeth, comatose.
