New To Blu: The Descendants
Clooney is at his best here. His recent Oscar nomination was a well deserved nod as he moved in to unfamiliar territory with this boundary stretching performance. We've seen him do drama before, but not like this. His distinct portrayal of an American father facing a desperate situation sets the tone of realism for this whole work of dramatic perfection.
The Descendants is a heavy film that will take a small toll on your emotions but will ultimately leave you with a feeling of satisfaction as the characters make positive momentum and move on with their lives despite the events unfolding before them. This is some of the best dramatic work of the last year and you should dedicate the time to seeing this movie.
