A lot of Kauai residents have been waiting for George Clooney’s movie The Descendants to come here, and they were finally rewarded with the opportunity to see the film when it opened at the Kukui Grove Cinema this past Friday, the 23rd.
The movie caused quite a buzz last year since filming took place on Kauai, quite a bit of it just a few feet from our office. 2010 was a big year for movies filmed on Kauai, which all released in 2011. The most notable were Pirates of the Carribean On Stranger Tides, Soul Surfer, Just Go With It and lastly but not least, The Descendants.
The Descendants is also causing quite a bit of Oscar buzz and has already garnered 5 Golden Globes nominations, one for Best Drama and one for Best Actor.
We are all abuzz, because now Kauai movie buffs can go see it!
Kauai has been featured in many movies since 1933. Here are a few links to other movie blogs we’ve done in the past. Enjoy!
