'The Descendants'

Release Date: Nov. 16

The Plot: An absentee dad (George Clooney) takes care of his rebellious daughters (newcomers Shailene Woodley and Amara Miller) after his wife (Patricia Hastie) falls into a coma. While mending ties with them, his world is turned upside down when he learns that his spouse had been cheating on him.

The Buzz: This is director Alexander Payne’s first full-length feature since he extolled the virtues of pinot noir in 2004’s universally acclaimed "Sideways." Clooney is already being hyped as a front runner for the best actor Oscar for his role in the film, and has said he'll be shocked if "The Descendants" isn't nominated for best picture.
