Movie Reviews

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. - 10/10 by Geoff BerkshireThere are flashier directors working today, but Payne's position at the forefront of contemporary filmmaking comes from telling richly human stories filled with wit, insight and unique charm.
USA Today - 10/10 by Claudia PuigAs directed by Alexander Payne, the film moves seamlessly from wry humor to heartbreaking sadness and takes clever deviations from the expected.
Rolling Stone - 10/10 by Peter TraversThe Descendants is damn near perfect. Director Alexander Payne is a master of the human comedy and George Clooney has never exposed himself to the camera this openly.
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.
MSN Movies - 10/10 by Glenn KennyIt works like a the extent that one's critic self wants to resist the urge to break down why it's working. - 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.
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.
Daily Mail (UK) - 10/10 by Christopher TookeyA grown-up, perceptive, funny film about family and responsibility, subjects rarely covered in movies except in cliched, romantic terms.
Chicago Tribune - 10/10 by Michael PhillipsIt's lovely - funny and sad and funny/sad in ways you can't always pinpoint, capturing both the perpetual Pacific island breezes and the unsettled interior lives of Hemmings' characters, chief among them the attorney played by George Clooney.
