After spending the day getting the house ready for Easter, Sharon and I watched The Descendants on Directv Cinema. When we moved, I had the Directv DVRs connected to the internet. This allows us to rent movies and have them downloaded to the DVR.
George Clooney received an Academy Award nomination for best actor for his role in the film. Additionally, The Descendants received Academy Award nominations for best picture, best director and best editing. It won an Academy Award for best adapted screenplay.
Sharon enjoyed the film more than I did. I thought it was a little slow, while Sharon felt like the pace and look of the film portrayed real life.
