The Descendants is a sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant journey for Matt King (George Clooney), an indifferent husband and father of two teenage girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki. The event leads to a rapprochement with his daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family's land handed down from Hawaiian royalty.
The Descendants will open the season of the Moonlight Cinema in Melbourne. The Moonlight Cinema will run from the 15th of December to the 17th of February. For the full program please check the website.
