VIEWED: The Descendants

My recommendation for this one was...

"for some reason I found the trailer compelling. I also made the wife watch it just to be sure the soy milk that I used to drink hadn't altered my hormones. When the trailer ended she looked at me and said, "hmm, let's see this film." I told her that just because I liked the trailer doesn’t mean I’ll be seeing the film AND there's a difference between being in touch with your feminine side and actually touching your feminine side. Yeah, this will be a date night movie."

Yes, this was a date night movie because we heard that it won a bunch of awards.

Clooney was pretty good - an understated sadness and subdued anger that was befitting a work-a-holic, non-present dad.  The rest of the cast was good, too.

Though The Descendants was slow moving, there was an air of sadness and enough conflict to make it entertaining - at least for me.  At the 52 minute mark the wife said, "dude, why are we watching this shit?"
