The Descendants

I really like this movie, because it's a role outside of George Clooney's norm and that it isn't a warm, fuzzy, melt your heart film either.  It portrays a father, with two daughters, who's wife is in the hospital after a boating accident.  While his wife is unconscious, he discovers that she had been having an affair.  He loves his wife, but now has to deal with this revelation, without any explanation from her, and he may never get it.  Meanwhile, he is trying to better the relationship with his youngest daughter and save the relationship with his oldest.

I figured this film would be good solely based on the fact that it was nominated for a couple of Academy Awards, but it was even better than I had expected.  I highly recommend it.
