Watch the First Clip from Alexander Payne’s ‘The Descendants’

The first clip has been released from Alexander Payne’s The Descendants, which stars George Clooney as a wealthy landowner who tries to rebuild his relationship with his daughters. It’s a brief clip and doesn’t really give us much, but I do feel it has a Wes Anderson vibe to it. The Descendants is Payne’s first film since his critically acclaimed Sideways, and is set to be released on December 16th. Head over to to check out the clip.

Here’s the official synopsis:

From Alexander Payne, the creator of the Oscar-winning SideWays, set in Hawaii, The Descendants is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki. The event leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family’s land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries.
