While browsing Twitter today I noticed that @FoxSearchlight posted a link to a website simply titled “Who Is He” and located at www.who-is-he.org. When a user visits the website they are greeted with the first clip from the upcoming Alexander Payne movie The Descendants wherein a flip-flopped George Clooney runs through a suburban neighborhood, enters a home, approaches Patricia Hastie and Rob Huebel, and poses the question that gave the website its name.
It is but a mere glimpse at a film coming out later this year that I am very highly anticipating. Along with the three actors mentioned above The Descendants also stars Judy Greer, Matthew Lillard, and Mary Birdsong among others and is directed by Sideways and About Schmidt auteur Alexander Payne. The brief IMDb synopsis says “A land baron tries to re-connect with his two daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident.” With Alexander Payne at the helm you know it will be filled with middle-class anxiety and its characters will have uncertain futures.

The Descendants will hit theatres in the U.S. on December 16, 2011.
