"THE DESCENDANTS" wins big in the recently concluded Golden Globes: Best Picture and Best Actor (George Clooney). 20th Century Fox thru Warner Bros. opens "The Descendants" on February 15 in theaters.

The Descendants is a beautiful story of a land baron tries to re-connect with his two daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident. With his wife Elizabeth on life support after a boating accident, Hawaiian land baron Matt King takes his daughters on a trip from Oahu to Kauai to confront the young real estate broker, who was having an affair with Elizabeth before her misfortune.

The event leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family's land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries.
