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 who-is-he.org 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.
