Shailene Woodley on George Clooney in 'The Descendants': 'He's a Good Arguer'

15 December 2011 1:11 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It's nerve-wracking to act alongside George Clooney -- and he knows it. Also read: 'Descendants': George Clooney as a Cuckold? Heck, Yes! Wednesday night following TheWrap's screening of "The Descendants" at the Landmark Theater, actors Shailene Woodley, Judy Greer, Matthew Lillard and Nick Krause -- along with producer Jim Burke -- talked about working with the film's leading man on the family drama. "It was a challenge to be in some feisty arguments with him. He's a good arguer," Woodley said during TheWrap Awards Screening Series discussion moderated by Editor-in-Chief Sharon Waxman. The 20-year-old actress, »

Best Ensemble... Except You Corey Stoll in "Midnight in Paris"!

14 December 2011 10:33 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's become something of a tradition here at The Film Experience to take issue with the Screen Actors Guild and their problematic "Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Motion Picture" prize. Year after year they don't even seek to address an issue that you'd think would matter to the 90,000+ guild members: the preferencing of "names" over character actors, no matter the size or importance of the role. As you may know acting is one of those fields were you're lucky to just be working and those who make millions are few and far between. Yet the guild, which should be protecting their less-famous members often lets them be crushed by fame and its perks (aka getting your own title card or high billing). If you don't have your own title card you usually don't end up in the "ensemble" list. Our interest in this situation was first stirred by »

It's a tie. Gotham Awards 2011

28 November 2011 9:54 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

What an odd way to open this year's awards season: Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life and Mike Mills's Beginners have tied for Best Feature at Monday night's Gotham Independent Film Awards, though I suppose one could say that Beginners came out of the evening with a slight edge in that it's also taken the Best Ensemble prize. The other films nominated for Best Feature were Jeff Nichols's Take Shelter, Alexander Payne's The Descendants and Kelly Reichardt's Meek's Cutoff.

Best Ensemble Performance: Beginners (Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer, Mélanie Laurent, Goran Visnjic, Kai Lennox, Mary Page Keller, Keegan Boos). Also nominated: The Descendants (George Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Beau Bridges, Robert Forster, Judy Greer, Matthew Lillard, Nick Krause, Amara Miller, Mary Birdsong, Rob Huebel), Margin Call (Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Zachary Quinto, Penn Badgley, Simon Baker, Mary McDonnell, Demi Moore, Stanley Tucci, Aasif Mandvi), Martha Marcy May Marlene (Elizabeth Olsen, »

New The Descendants Trailer And Stills Released

26 November 2011 5:42 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’ve been looking forward to this one for a while and now we have a new international trailer for The Descendants. From the writer and director of Sideways, Alexander Payne, it tells the story of Matt King (George Clooney) as the father of two daughters who starts to reassess his life after his wife is left in a coma.

Based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, this is sure to test the heart and head as it explores a very different side of Hawaii to the usual American way.

If this trailer is anything to go by, then surely is already Clooney up as an early favourite for the Oscars in a touching portrayal of a man on the outside of everything he previously knew and a re-discovery of what it is to live. It looks like a great and intelligent mix of comedy and drama, check out »

The Descendants

23 November 2011 7:00 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The Descendants

Directed by: Alexander Payne

Cast: George Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Amara Miller, Nick Krause

Running Time: 1 hr 55 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: November 23, 2011

Plot: Matt (Clooney) tries to connect with his two daughters after his wife gets into a boating accident. He also oversees a large piece of untouched Hawaiian land, and it might be time to sell.

Who’S It For? Fans of George Clooney and family drama should flock to this film. Be prepared for more tears than laughter.

Expectations: I knew nothing, and honestly, you should truly try to follow the same suit. The previews dive too quickly into plot details I was thrilled not to know. Once again, I will do my best to avoid plot spoilers.

Overall

I am attempting to go “spoiler free” with this review and that means not including big plot swings that happen in the first 25 minutes of the film. »

The Descendants – The Review

23 November 2011 6:53 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

A wise man once said: .It is much easier to become a father than to be one.. Writer/director Alexander Payne.s The Descendants, based on a novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, is the best example of that sentiment on film that I.ve seen in many years. The story of a father and husband trying to find his way after failing in both roles isn.t as funny as Payne.s previous films Citizen Ruth, Election, About Schmidt, or Sideways, but it.s his most emotional and one of the best films of the year.

Set in Hawaii, The Descendants opens with an off-screen boating accident that puts Elizabeth King (Patricia Hastie) in the hospital, on life support and in a deep coma. It.s looking less likely by the day that she.s going to wake up. While her distant husband Matt (George Clooney) attempts to deal his wife.s likely death, »

The Descendants Movie Review

Title: The Descendants Directed By: Alexander Payne Written By: Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon, Jim Rash, based on Kaui Hart Hemmings’s novel Cast: George Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Amara Miller, Nick Krause, Patricia Hastie, Beau Bridges, Matthew Lillard, Judy Greeg If our currently somber economic conditions have been caused in part by the selling of housing to people who cannot afford it, such is not the case in Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants.” Payne, whose “Sideways” had us remember Paul Giamatti’s quote “Don’t give me merlot,” this time constructs a man who is expected to sell land for housing to large developers with deep pockets and with little chance of default.

Fantastic New Clip And Two Featurettes For Alexander Payne’s The Descendants With George Clooney

19 November 2011 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It’s been a little while since we last saw something from George Clooney’s The Descendants, but it certainly hasn’t dropped off the radar, and it’s one of the films I’m most looking forward to seeing next year.

With George Clooney’s The Ides of March having now its release, making a fantastic impression, we can now pave the way for his next film – this time in an acting role only, with Alexander Payne taking the helm – which looks to be deservedly tipped to head straight for the Oscars at the start of next year.

“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 Descendants Review

18 November 2011 4:18 PM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

The Descendants Directed by: Alexander Payne Written by: Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon & Jim Rash (screenplay), Kaui Hart Hemmings (novel) Starring: George Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Amara Miller, Nick Krause Alexander Payne paints a different picture of Hawaii. In the opening montage of his new film The Descendants, the director not so gently reminds us that the island "paradise," with its little-photographed cities and suburbs, isn't exactly the Eden we've been sold. The sequence perfectly reflects Payne's no bullshit pragmatism, seen last in 2004's excellent Sideways. For gluttons for Payne, The Descendants has been a long time coming. Based on a novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, the film follows George Clooney as Matt King, a wealthy lawyer with hereditary ties to Hawaiian royalty, and the sole trustee of his family's thousands of acres of untapped land. As King circles a buyer for the valuable property, his wife falls off a jet ski »

Film Review: George Clooney Stars in Stunning ‘The Descendants’

17 November 2011 7:27 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – If one looks solely at the central male characters, it can seem remarkably easy to classify Alexander Payne’s movies under the subgenre heading of “mid-life crisis comedies”: Jim McAllister (“Election”), Warren Schmidt (“About Schmidt”), Miles (“Sideways”), and now the memorable protagonist of his stellar new dramedy “The Descendants,” Matt King. But these characters are also among the most three-dimensional and fully-defined of the comedy genre in the last twenty years. Payne goes deeper than the cliché of the male mid-life crisis to find what’s real and relatable to people at any time in their lives. His latest is a stunning tightrope act of comedy, sentimentality, drama, and the character definition that can only come from a man who has spent his life observing the complexity of the human race.

Rating: 5.0/5.0

The Descendants” opens with a woman on the water (and is wonderfully book-ended in that respect »

The Descendants” is Alexander Payne’s first directorial effort in seven years, since “Sideways.” It stars George Clooney as Matt King, a real-estate heir and father of two girls who must wrestle with his wife’s critical condition following a boating accident.

It’s a different role for Clooney, who typically plays the handsome and charismatic leading man. His understated performance is garnering early best actor Oscar buzz, in a year when he has also directed another film, »
