Parents just don't understand! In Alexander Payne's new movie 'The Descendants,' his first since 2004's 'Sideways,'George Clooney plays a dad who's pretty clueless.

His teenage daughter is the one to finally tell him that his wife, injured in a boating accident and still in the hospital, has been cheating on him.

In this first trailer, Clooney struggles to be a "single" dad to his young daughters after their mother gets hurt -- that is, until he finds out the truth.
