The Descendants DVD Review


Experience the Heartbreak and Humor When the 
Academy Award® and Golden Globe® Winner 
Comes to Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD March 13

From director Alexander Payne creator of the Oscar® winningSideways comes one of the Best Pictures of the year, THE DESCENDANTS, featuring a stunning cast including Best Actor nominee George Clooney (Ides of March) and Shailene Woodley (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) in her Golden Globe nominated and Independent Spirit Award winning role. Take home this wonderfully warm and witty film and go behind the scenes of THE DESCENDANTS with all-new exclusive content on Blu-ray Disc Combo Pack and DVD March 13 from Fox Searchlight and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Based on the best-selling novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings and set in Hawaii, THE DESCENDANTS is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki. The event leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family’s land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries.
Nominated for five Academy Awards® and winner for Best Adapted Screenplay, THE DESCENDANTS is a must-have on Blu-ray and DVD. The release is packed with must-see deleted scenes, behind the scenes extras and exclusive featurettes to bring you even further into the story. Pre-book date is February 15.

This movie was one of the best movies I have seen in a long time!  I don't really watch a lot of tv, and when I do it's the Disney channel, so I can honestly say that I didn't even see this movie advertised (gasp, I know!). The Descendants, for me, was a tear jerker. There were some really funny scenes throughout the move and there is also some foul language but, for me, I did't mind that at all.  As you watch the movie, your heart goes out to the dad (George Clooney).  I always tend to put myself in the character's shoes and by doing so, with this movie, I become a little emotional.

Overall, this is the perfect 'movie night' movie; sensitive folks, like myself, will need a tissue or two.  My hubby really like it too and I've already watched it twice and I've had the DVD for less than a week :)

This DVD is a must buy!
