Three sentence movie reviews: The Descendants
Slow, in that good, meditative way that I enjoy, this was an acting tour de force by yes, of course George Clooney, but especially by Shailene Woodley playing his older daughter. The incredibly understated story has me wondering about the book which I’ve just put on hold at the library. As with most Alexander Payne movies, there were some excellent scenes that will probably populate my brain for years and I always, always enjoy Judy Greer who steals every scene she appears in.

This is on our MUST SEE list. I like the idea of George Clooney as a father and not sexy spy or something like that. I love Judy Greer, too!
