  • The Descendants

    What do you get when you blend drama, comedy, George Clooney and the most beautiful place onto the planet into two hours of cinema so moving and funny that you’re liable to choke on the tears you’re still crying even as you laugh?

Everyone was thinking it, but God knows it had never been articulated before George Clooney bravely blew the cobwebs off our antiquated belief that politicians are all selfless good guys working for the benefit of Joe Q. Public. The Ides of March is snappy and competent, but its hackneyed ‘message’ is dated beyond belief.
