The Descendants

Yesterday was unseasonably warm here (60 degrees!), so my mom and I did what anyone else would do when it’s gorgeous out: we sat inside a movie theatre.

What can I say: we like to be unpredictable.

We saw The Descendants, which I’ve been wanting to see for a while. We both loved it, though at times it was a little slow. (I don’t feel like that’s necessarily a bad thing, but Nick surely would have been a bit restless.) We especially loved the little girl who played Scotty, George Clooney’s youngest daughter. It was a sad movie, for sure, but it had some funny moments, mostly thanks to Scotty.

Have you seen anything good lately?


  1. I haven’t been to the movies lately, but we just saw Jersey Boys at the Forrest Theatre and it was amazing! I know it only runs through next weekend, but I wish I could go see it again!

  2. I saw that movie with girlfriends and enjoyed it. It was a smaller theater so it seemed more intimate. When I saw who was playing the realtor, I said “really?” a little too loud and the whole theater of women starting laughing. Oops.

  3. I’m so behind on what American movies are playing. We came across a movie theater on the naval base we’re at right now, but of course it’s not playing the only two movies I’ve really wanted to see–the girl with the dragon tattoo, and (embarrassingly enough) breaking dawn. Bummer! At least there’s netflix!
