A.O. Scott at the New York Times liked "The Descendants" better than I did, but I still liked it very much. We are in agreement about the very strong supporting cast. The writing is also exemplary, as is the cinematography. I found George Clooney just a bit less compelling here than in Up In the Air, and I could have done without the vaguely political land development subplot. But, overall, a fine mix of comedy and drama.
