The Descendants

Mary B and I went to downtown Portland for a 5:05 p.m. screening of "The Descendants" with George Clooney. A really good movie, based on a 2007 debut novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings. A compelling people story, no flying bullets, no car chases. Rather, one deep, almost out of control emotion after another. A family in grave crisis. Together, they pull through and do the right things. George Clooney's seventeen year old screen daughter Alexandra, played by Shailene Woodley, is terrific.Shailene-Woodley.JPG
