The backdrop of Hawaii is both beautiful and an important part of the plot in The
Descendants. In this feature, we will highlight five other films that highlight the beautiful
islands of Hawaii, including Blue Hawaii, Lilo & Stitch and Tora! Tora! Tora!

Based on the best-selling novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings and set in Hawaii, THE
DESCENDANTS is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George
Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past
and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki. The event
leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to
sell the family’s land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries.
