We finally got around to watching The Descendants, a favorably reviewed George Clooney movie from a couple years ago. In it, he plays a wealthy landowner with a little bit of native Hawaiian blood. So you know he’s really part native, he sports a Polynesian unibrow. Inexplicably, unlike the brief phase when all the big-time actors wanted to wear mustaches (see The Men Who Stare at Goats for how they met their quota in bulk), the Polynesian unibrow hasn’t caught on.
Two take-away messages from the movie:
- Rich people can have serious problems at home, even when they are wrestling with rich people matters like how to dispose of the islands they own.
- Even if you’re dying tragically you still have to own up to all the bad stuff you did.
