The comedy-drama ‘Descendants’ from writer-director Alexander Payne has been praised since its first screening at the Toronto Film Festival last year.

It stars George Clooney who plays Matt King, a lawyer who tries to re-connect with his two daughters after his wife of 20 years falls into a coma after a boating accident.

The ‘Decendants’ follows Payne’s Oscar-nominated film Sideways and is based on Kaui Hart Hemmings first novel.

Clooney’s performance has already been tipped for an Oscar.

The film hits UK screens at the end of January.
