The Descendants (2011, 115 min) From Alexander Payne, the creator of the Oscar-winning Sideways, 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.

The NCP movie series allows clinicians to explore psychoanalytic concepts in an open and exciting discussion format. By using the dynamics of film characters and plots as metaphors for the projections of mental states, we can gain an understanding of the dynamics of people who come to us for help. The movie programs are geared to mental health professionals. They may also be informative for the general public with an interest in psychoanalytic ideas.
