In Alexander Payne's comedy-drama, Clooney portrays a Honolulu attorney and sole trustee of a family trust that controls 25,000 acres of Kauai land. Just as he is about to close the deal, a boating accident leaves his wife in a coma. He then re-gears to connect with his two daughters (Amara Miller and Shailene Woodley, pictured). The film won a 2012 Academy Award for adapted screenplay and two Golden Globe Awards for best drama picture and best actor in a drama.
