The Descendants Trailer Starring George Clooney

The Descendants Trailer: George Clooney Plays Mr. Mom

For the most part, George Clooney has managed to avoid taking on fatherly roles while putting together his impressive résumé, but it's a refreshing turn to see him as a dad in this preview for The Descendants. Clooney leaves his lothario ways and signature smirk behind to play Matt, a father trying to to reconnect with his daughters when his wife is seriously injured in a boating accident. He has a particularly hard time getting through to teenage Alex (The Secret Life of the American Teenager's Shailene Woodley) — until she reveals that her sassy attitude is rooted in the fact that her mother was having a secret affair.


This indie dramedy looks like just the kind of movie that tugs on your heartstrings but still manages to make you smile. Clooney is always fun to watch, and I'm looking forward to another layered performance from the Oscar-winning actor (the Hawaiian setting is an added bonus). The movie is set for a December release date, but watch the sweet preview when you
