Beth and I have been seeing lots of movies lately, and I'm behind on blogging about them. So here we go!

Two weeks ago, we saw The Descendants before I had to go into work at 11 PM for a late-night (that turned into all-night) data center move. It's a very good film - well acted, nuanced, very pretty. I described it to friends as "low-impact drama" -- it's not melodramatic at all; it stays small and real. It's based in Hawaii, and it makes the most out of the Hawaii locations without turning into a travelogue.
