By Maria Esteves – October 19, 2011

The 49th New York Film Festival 2011(NYFF 2011) presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center press screening of The Descendants, directed by Academy award-winning filmmaker Alexander Payne was held at Lincoln Center’s Gilman Theater, Sunday, October 15, 11:30 AM. A live press conference immediately followed with director Payne, casts members Amara Miller (Scottie King), Beau Bridges (cousin Hugh), George Clooney (Matt King), Judy Greer (Julie Speer), Matthew Lillardl (Brian Speer), Nick Krause (Sid), Robert Forster (Scott Thorson), and Shailene Woodley (Alexandra King), moderated by chief critic Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter.

The Descendants based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, is a dramatic, humorous, and heartfelt family film about a Hawaiian property owner Matt King (George Clooney) and his family. Matt husband and father of two daughters Scottie (Amara Miller) and Alexandra (Shailene Woodley) who considered himself a backup parent, is challenge as a single parent. The King’s family confrontation with love, forgiveness, mortality, and how to rise above to the occasion makes this a great Oscar nominee contender.
