The Descendants


  • Let's go surfing.

This much-decorated film is set in Hawaii. A water-skiing accident lands mom in a coma. Dad is forced into a role he is not used to, that of actively looking after his two teen daughters. At the same time, he's trying to sell a large family property which would leave the family very wealthy. Things do not look good for mom, and then he learns some disturbing news about her, which sends him and the girls on an island-hopping journey of discovery. The film was nominated for five Oscars, including best film, director, actor and adapted script.
