About The Descendants
A funny yet moving drama about a dysfunctional family. George Clooney stars as Matt, a well-meaning, slightly ineffective husband and father, whose family own a large tract of land in Hawaii. His world is shaken when his wife has a boating accident and goes into a life-threatening coma. Having always been glad to take a back seat when it came to parenting, Matt has to step up to the plate and take a more active role in the lives of his two daughters while dealing with the news that his wife was unfaithful. He also has to decide whether or not to sell the family's land to developers, deal with his father-in-law and placate his feisty eldest daughter, Alex (Shailene Woodley) who insists on bringing her stoner boyfriend into the situation.
