New Featurette And Clip For Golden Globe Winning THE DESCENDENTS


In the wake of The Descendants’ triumph at the Golden Globes last night where it won the Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Actor (George Clooney) categories, Fox Searchlight have whisked us over a new behind-the-scenes featurette and an all new clip entitled “Mom Is Cheating On You”. In the featurette we hear from Alexander Payne why he decided to adapt the book to a film, why he George Clooney was on his mind when he decide to make the film also hear from Gorgeous George (from LFF 2011) his thoughts on the flick along with Shailene Woodley who plays his on screen rebellious daughter.Though it might be at times it might be very frustrating when there’s a wide gap between a film’s USA and British/Irish release however when the film is released this time of the year especially the start of the Awards season seeing that flick pick up the awards like The Descendents it make the wait worthwhile.

THE DESCENDANTS opens in UK &Ireland on January 27th, already out State side, and also co-stars Judy Greer​​, Matthew Lillard​​, Beau Bridges​​, and Robert Forster​​.

From Alexander Payne, the creator of the Oscar-winning SIDEWAYS, 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.
