The film, which follows Clooney’s Matt King, a descendant of Hawaiian royalty, as he decides what to do with a large chunk of land his family inherited, was based on a short story by native Hawaiian Kaui Hart Hemmings and shot entirely in the state.

“The Descendants” won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.
