The Descendants (Nov. 16)
George Clooney is earning Oscar buzz for his performance as a Hawaiian landowner and father of two whose life goes off the rails after he learns that his wife (Patricia Hastie), who lies in a coma, had been having an affair. But the actor argues that the dramedy?s true star is director/co-writer Alexander Payne, who returns to the big screen seven years after his Oscar-nominated indie hit Sideways. ”He’s such a talented director, and he’s only done four movies,” says Clooney (pictured with Shailene Woodley). ”I tell him all the time, ‘Make more movies!”’
