The Descendants


Alright, let’s get straight to the point. The Oscars nominations will be announced next week.

Therefore, I studied the Golden Globes winners’ list for a clue of possible Oscar nominees.

The Descendants has become a favorite. Alexander Payne directed this film and he’s known for his satire and dark humor.  The Descendants made 1, 190, 096 dollars on its opening weekend. It has a 89 percent at the Rotten Tomatoes website, with an audience rating of 82 percent.

This film touches the hearts of the audience, with its authentic presentation of heartache, love, and relationships. It’s about a family coming together  for support and learning about each other.

This film falls under the comedy and drama categories. However, I found myself in tears by the end of it. These characters are dealing with real emotions and concerns. Overall, I would recommend this films to those who like serious films and dark humor.
