Clooney was solid but just like Pitt in Moneyball, I'd be kind of disappointed if this is the role that gets him an Oscar.
Exactly how I felt. I thought Clooney was good but not as good as advertised, the same as Pitt in Moneyball.
I still enjoyed it though, I liked the older daughter as well I though she played her role well. I would have given it 7.5/10.
