The Descendants is an exercise in why women are such horrible, despicable shrews. When this film isn't demonising its female characters for daring to be unhappy in their marriage, it's condescending them for showing too much emotion...
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.
What a pity the artistic trust (director/co-writer Alexander Payne along with Nat Faxon and Jim Rash whose screenplay was based on Kaui Hart Hemming's novel) couldn't find a way of making the protagonist's character more sympathetic.
Hawaii's lush and luminous landscape is well appreciated, but it does nothing to mask the maddeningly irrational plot-points Payne expects us to swallow in the name of an alleged skewering social commentary.
