What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Unaffected performances and an exotic location come together to create something that is greater than the sum of its parts. While there are some unpredicatable funny moments, the film concentrates on the messiness that is life.
Jeanne Calitz Clooney die ster van dié gesinsdrama.
Todd McCarthy Cheers for Payne's replay after 'Sideways'.
Pete Hammond Awards prospects are through the roof. The Descendants is that rare bird, moving, enlightening, funny and unapologetically human. It's one of the year's best pictures, one to savor and think about.
James Berardinelli The Descendants delivers what too few recent movies achieve: intellectual stimulation coupled with emotional satisfaction. By default, that makes it one of 2011's best offerings.
Peter Travers If there's something fundamentally wrong with The Descendants, I can't find it. What I see ranks high on the list of the year's best films.
C. Fuchs While it might not work for everyone, I found it quite enjoyable, entertaining and touching.
Tomatometer Funny, moving, and beautifully acted, The Descendants captures the unpredictable messiness of life with eloquence and uncommon grace.
