Alexander Payne (Sideways, About Schmidt) directs George Clooney in this delicate dramedy. Clooney plays a Hawaiian land owner whose wife is in a coma following a near-fatal boating accident. Now, our overworked, underprepared father has got to figure out how to parent his two troublesome young daughters. Also, he's in the middle of a multimilllion-dollar real estate deal. Also, he just found out his wife was cheating on him. Without ever dipping into soap opera hysterics, Payne and his pitch-perfect actors create a funny, sad, messy, highly empathetic portrait of life, class and tradition. 115 minutes R.
