Very well done. The emotions from the characters seem incredibly genuine and real. Clooney was frankly better than usual.

Wow. Never seen George Clooney sweaty, tired or totally exhausted in any movie. Anyway, great performance by all the cast, very slow and apt pacing, great drama, very original. Probably one of the best from the Oscar pick. The daughters were exceptional. This one I highly recommend to anyone that likes slow drama movies.

Here's an advice about how to regard Sid's character: spoiler

"The Descendants" is a pleasant film set in pleasant Hawaii scored with pleasant Hawaiian music and pleasantly and neatly crafted writing that never really strays from its set path once set in motion. What makes "The Descendants" worth watching beyond simply how pleasant it is however, is the real emotional control that Clooney brings to a role that could quickly topple out of control in the wrong hands. In fact, much of the acting across the board is to be lauded. Still, the film feels vaguely empty. spoiler

Even with all the Oscar buzz surrounding this movie, it still met my expectation. Great drama. Pretty sad too with solid performances.

Joker of Gotham

I saw this movie for the second time, the first was a year and 8 months ago, and I have to say that for me the second time was better for me.
The Writing of this movie is fantastic, very impressive, Clooney is Clooney, great in this type of movies, the daughters were fantastic, two great breakout performances.
Fantastic drama with some funny moments, one of the best movies of 2011.

Only thing that detracted from the movie for me was the sound track. Way to many tracks that sounded like a cat stuck in a blender

Really sweet movie, with a funny and different take of that subject.
Great acting by everyone and the humor in it was fantastic!
Though I don't believe it was Oscar worthy, but definitely one of the better movies from 2011!

Very unusual but brilliant film.

I'm with frankqb on this one (both in his abundant praise and slight criticism). I loved the black humor. In addition to the actors, the make-up artists deserve much praise, as does the director of photography spoiler and the soundtrack department. I did walk out of the theatre baffled and not quite understanding what had just come to me.

In my opinion, very overrated. I had heard so much about it I expected more. I'd dare to say it is even a little boring, although the story's engaging and, for such a sad story, there are some funny moments brought by Clooney's daughter's boyfriend.

Not an Oscar material, Clooney was good but not the best.

Good, not great. If it had been released in June the critical response would had been much worse. One of Clooney's finest performances, though.

Predictable and overrated.
