Movie Reviews

Christian Science Monitor - 10/10 by Peter Rainer Clooney and Payne are coconspirators, too. They know that the story they are telling is too emotionally complicated to muck up with a lot of preening and artifice. They head right into the sad and crazymaking humor of the situation. This is a modest marvel of a movie.
Entertainment Spectrum - 10/10 by Keith Cohen This unforgettable movie succeeds by making audiences feel like a part of the family. Clooney knocks it out of the park with a marvelous performance. Woodley makes a strong bid for a supporting actress nomination. The supporting players are all given...
Philadelphia Inquirer - 10/10 by Steven Rea Clooney has never been better, subtler, more deeply rooted in a performance than he is in The Descendants. And he's funny, too.
Tampa Bay Times - 10/10 by Steve Persall The Descendants would still be a splendid movie without him; with Clooney, it's one of 2011's very best.
Wall Street Journal - 10/10 by Joe Morgenstern Rarely has a contemporary movie taken in so much life and revealed it with such depth of feeling. - 10/10 by Sara Michelle Fetters Few films have dealt with the concept of parental death as movingly, poetically and lovingly as this, delivering a strikingly powerful narrative that is as profound as it is honest. - 10/10 by Lisa Giles-Keddie The perfect combination of dramedy, tragedy and familiar fallouts that simultaneously brings tears of joy and sorrow, with seemingly effortless effect.
Radio Times - 10/10 by Andrew Collins Warm, subtle and gentle, The Descendants demonstrates what can happen when indie talent is nurtured to mainstream success.
Globe and Mail - 10/10 by Gayle MacDonald Clooney 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.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 10/10 by Gail MacDonald Heartwarming, tragic and, at times, hilariously funny drama. - 10/10 by Peter Sobczynski Easily Payne's most notable work since his 1999 breakthrough "Election" and quite possibly the finest work of his entire career.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger Ebert What happens is that we get vested in the lives of these characters. That's rare in a lot of movies.
