Movie Reviews

The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 10/10 by Gail MacDonaldHeartwarming, tragic and, at times, hilariously funny drama.
Radio Times - 10/10 by Andrew CollinsWarm, subtle and gentle, The Descendants demonstrates what can happen when indie talent is nurtured to mainstream success.
Arizona Republic - 10/10 by Bill GoodykoontzWith so many balls in the air the temptation is to rush from one plot strand to another, but Payne takes the opposite approach. He also captures the complexity of emotional reactions that grief stirs.
Washington Post - 10/10 by Ann HornadayA tough, tender, observant, exquisitely nuanced portrait of mixed emotions at their most confounding and profound -- all at play within a deliciously damp, un-touristy Hawaii that's at once lush and lovely to look at.
New York Times - 10/10 by A.O. ScottTo call "The Descendants" perfect would be a kind of insult, a betrayal of its commitment to, and celebration of, human imperfection. Its flaws are impossible to distinguish from its pleasures. - 10/10 by Peter SobczynskiEasily Payne's most notable work since his 1999 breakthrough "Election" and quite possibly the finest work of his entire career.
Globe and Mail - 10/10 by Gayle MacDonaldClooney and the elder daughter (Shailene Woodley) give Oscar-worthy performances in this hard-knocks film that will have you laughing one moment and sobbing the next.
Tri-City Herald - 10/10 by Gary WolcottA non-preachy exploration of the depth, width and complexity of life, love and relationships, and this great gift we call humanity.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 10/10 by Steven ReaPayne introduces a circle of friends and family, and shows us the connections, and conflicts, in play. And he makes it all feel lived-in, real.
Wall Street Journal - 10/10 by Joe MorgensternRarely has a contemporary movie taken in so much life and revealed it with such depth of feeling.
