While I agree Clooney did a remarkable job in his role, the entire movie was atrocious. Almost every charactor was a hateful despicable foul mouthed attack dog with little redeeming nature. Had to force myself to sit through it hoping there would be some return to wholesome by the end (wrong). Not the movie's fault, but the presentation of the daughters as such angry hostile foul mouthed wenches make one think better not use a $30,000/semester private school for my kids! The dying woman was definitely the most realistic rendition of a patient on life support I have ever seen in a movie. Aside from tha,t not much real-people activity.
