  7. Thanks for the chance! Do I get an extra point for having you on my 'Blogs I Like' on my blog?! I would love to read this as well as watch the movie afterwards! Great giveaway!

  8. George Clooney is fantastic as a father in the middle of a crisis. Usually busy with work, after his wife's accident and subsequent coma, he finds himself in the role of primary parent. Both of his daughters are troubled and like most fathers faced with this, he is trying to fix them/the situation. The betrayal of his wife complicates things and creates the uniqueness of the film. Also going on is a piece of inherited family land on Kauai that is about to sold, making multiple cousins very rich (and Clooney controls the trust and the ultimate decision to sell or not).

    I loved this film so much as it is a unique perspective of a father and his two daughters, and the father being cheated on, not another movie of a mom and her children struggling after the husband cheated. This is by far Clooney's best film and it is easy to get caught up in his situation. I did not like the daughters the first time I saw this in the theater, it after watching it a second time, I understand. They are troubled and clearly have not had an involved parent in their lives.
