A film by Alexander Payne.

Well here they are in Hawaii where in woman is in a coma, due to an accident, a teenage daughter of Hawaiian land baron Matt King that does drugs was sent to a private school and an other daughter who says nasty thing to her class mate. Then you have Matt king who has to make 2 major decision in a couple days. There this is just the beginning of the adventure of a dysfunctional family, By the way welcome to Paradise.
Terrific performance from Clooney who’s character is vulnerable, strong, confused, decisive, anguished, angry. Clooney is so effective in this one that it is like you are standind directly in is shoes. Terrific performance for Amara Miller this was her first movie very organic she’ll go far to become a star someday it will not surprise me.The director of this movie, Alexander Payne, was the guy who made “Sideways.”this is a different movie for Payne one who deal with family matters. He shows the natural beauty of hawaii. And he did not use an ochrestra for the sound track that would foreshadow and punctuate the scenes telling us how our emotions should run. The soundtrack was perfect. A must see movie I gave it a 9 out of 10 rating.
