1 Feb 2012 – Hello Feb…
The Descendants****Matt King is a lawyer and the sole trustee of a family trust that controls 25,000 acres of pristine land on the island of Kauai. Just before family members are ready to formally endorse the deal, which Matt favors, a boating accident renders Matt’s wife, Elizabeth, comatose.
The event leads to a reconciliation with his two daughters, while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family’s land. Under different pressure from various factions, Matt then finds out that his wife was having an affair…
George Clooney did an excellent job playing Matt, enjoyed the scenes from Hawaii. This movie’s genre is considered to be a comedy but it’s really both comedy & drama!
The irony is that we (all the siblings) have recently sold the last of the family land and liquidating the company next week. Hopefully this can be wrapped up tying all loose ends before the month is over! Would like to be back in Norway and USA to visit with the grandchildren as soon as this is settled!
The great advantage of living in a large family is that early lesson of life’s essential unfairness – Nancy Mitford
