Chris' Film Club: The Descendants

Today in 1959 President Eisenhower signed the bill that allowed Hawaii to become a state so I've picked a film that is set on the islands and features them in all their beauty. That film is The Descendants, starring George Clooney, about a lawyer whose wife is in a coma following an accident. He struggles to connect with his daughters and prepare them, and himself, for the worst.

A funny, but also moving, film with a great performance from Clooney. It is based on a book of the same name by Kaui Hart Hemmings and it also stars Shailene Woodley, Beau Bridges, Judy Greer and Matthew Lillard.
