Judy Greer (Two and a Half Men), mainly known for her comedic work, delivers an inspired dramatic performance in The Descendants, playing a woman who discovers her real estate agent hubby (Matthew Lilllard) had an affair.  During the movie’s third chapter, Greer’s confrontation with her soulmate’s mistress is both heartbreaking, evocative, and in true Alexander Payne form, painfully funny.
