The Descendants - Wogma Readers Reviews
George Clooney in the first 5 minutes of The Descendants says via a voiceover, “I am the backup parent, the understudy”, and immediately you know this is going to be a coming of age film, which is ironical considering the film spans over 10 days. To be able to turn things around convincingly, in a story that encompasses that time frame, is no easy job. The film manages to inculcate in you, the same values that the Rajshri’s have been trying for generations (coupled with a darling of a story). This time around, with The Descendants, Alexandre Payne makes the job seem effortless and manages to tug your heart.
