Clooney returns with comedy drama The Descendants
George Clooney is back on the big screen in The Descendants - an American comedy-drama directed by Alexander Payne.
The film follows Matt King (Clooney) 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.
When his wife Elizabeth goes into a coma after a boating accident, King needs to wisen up and take care of his two daughters.
Forced to sell the land, King takes his daughters on a trip from Oahu to Kauai, and there he discovers a heart-breaking secret when he finds out his wife was having an affair with a young real estate broker before the accident.
The film debuts at cinemas around the country on Friday.
