George Clooney's 'loser' role in The Descendants

The Descendants is the story of a man whose world is turned upside down when his wife is seriously injured in a boating accident.

George Clooney has been nominated for an Oscar for his performance as Matt King, an attorney trying to reconnect with his daughters while struggling with the news of his wife's infidelity.

As Tom Brook reports, it marks new territory for its star.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and is repeated on Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 GMT.
