George Clooney gives a wonderful lead performance in his new film The Descendants but Clooney has always been more than just a handsome face, he's a proper movie star and in that old Hollywood tradition, he's also an everyman, one of us.
The sharp wit and commitment to damaged men remain, but with his newfound appreciation of what goes unsaid, The Descendants sees Payne finally becoming the filmmaker many have claimed he was all along.
The Descendants becomes a kind of exhilarating, island-hopping road movie with Matt as much in search of himself as of his wife's mysterious lover. Along the way he's learning what it means to be a man, to understand himself and others.
Uma narrativa artificial e frágil que soa mais como a visão de um roteirista alienado de Hollywood sobre a vida de uma pessoa comum (multimilionária, claro) do que como algo com o qual indivíduos reais poderiam se identificar de alguma maneira.
The mix of slapstick and pathos is exquisitely judged, but the viewer needs to be patient for the film to work its magic. Adjust to its rhythm, though, and you'll be rewarded by a wry and perceptive view of the human comedy.
