2011, 115m

A family drama framed in the windblown landscape of Hawaii. The about to be widowed Clooney discovers he has been cuckolded, even as his wife lies in a coma, awaiting withdrawal of the life support system. Clooney is a descendant of the earliest American settlers in Hawaii and the trustee of a huge estate which is about to be sold to developers who will convert the idyllic paradise to a commercial complex. The film is a well made soap opera which keeps you engrossed.

It is too good to be called 'soap opera'.

Watch Payne's other films, by the way. They are also smart and funny.

I meant soap opera as a generic label rather than in a derogatory sense.
