Hollywood's eternal bachelor George Clooney is settled down as a family man and father of two in Sideways director Alexander Payne's upcoming drama, The Descendants. Struggling to build a closer relationship with his two teen daughters after his wife's accident, Matt (Clooney) finds being a more checked in father poses a few difficulties, and exposes his own regrets and shortcomings.
Payne, who also directed About Schmidt, seems drawn to impossibly dull movies that try hard to be somewhat profound. Let's see how this new one goes. The Descendants, which also stars Judy Greer, Beau Bridges, and Matthew Lillard, hits theaters December 16.
