E11 - The Descendants (2011)

Today we watched The Descendents, a 2011 dramedy from Alexander Payne in which George Clooney faces the dual crises of marital infidelity from a partner in a sudden coma. Throughout the episode, we talk about the anxieties of new or worsening disability, the need for closure in the face of heartache, and we ask how an unconscious offscreen wheelie is written with more humanity than Redmayne's Hawking. Anthony also proudly unveils a new cripple parody song.
