In the Oscar-winning film The Descendants, a grieving husband played by George Clooney must deal with betrayal, mortality, and two high-spirited daughters. Writer-Director Alexander Payne’s remarkable script—which won him an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay—miraculously walks the line between searing drama and delightful comedy.

As the movie comes to DVD and BluRay, we look back at our Movies for Grownups Awards Gala in Hollywood, when we honored The Descendants as the year’s Best Movie for Grownups...and Payne talked about how he’s loved grownup movies ever since he was a teenager.
