Synopsis

Hawaiian lawyer Matt King (George Clooney) is forced to reconnect with his daughters when his wife is injured in a water-skiing accident, leaving her in a coma. However, while he attempts to build bridges with his two anxious girls, his misfortune is compressed with the unwelcome news that his wife has been having an affair. Sideways director Alexander Payne draws a sublime performance of grizzled anxiety from his star in a performance that he's never bettered. The bittersweet script also landed an Oscar for best adapted screenplay.
