Saw "The Descendants". It was, indeed, a very good movie; maybe even a great movie. However, I saw with family who'd been tremendously mislead by the ad campaign into thinking it was a comedy. It wasn't. It was a serious drama with a few lighthearted moments. Still a very good movie.

Going on the same basis of "top flight filmmaker + great actor = great movie", I'm going to guess that "The Descendants" is going to rock. George Clooney has been doing really good work lately ("Up In the Air", et al) and the writer/director Alexander Payne brought us "Election", "About Schmidt", and "Sideways". Sounds like a great combo.
