Billionaire Nerio Winch has drowned - an obviously suspicious death, given that he is thefounder and main shareholder of the powerful and sprawling Group W.
Who will inherent this economic empire? Officially, Nerio had no family. But he harbored awell-kept secret: a son, Largo, adopted from a Bosnian orphanage nearly thirty years ago.
The only problem is that this young heir has just been thrown in jail at the far end of the Amazon. Accused of drug trafficking, he protests his innocence. Nerio has been murdered. Largo has been jailed. What if these two cases were in fact part of a conspiracy to seize control of the Winch empire?

There were only two films that were able to crack the $10,000 club this weekend, but they were both huge hits. The Descendants opened with more than $1 million in 29 theaters, for an average of $41,038. Add in the film's reviews and its Awards Season buzz and there's little doubt that the film will expand wide. Speaking of wide, the only other film in the $10,000 club was The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1. The overall box office leader took in $138 million in 4,061 theaters, for an average of $34,012.

It's a great week for limited releases, but not because there are a huge number of releases, but because this week The Descendants comes out. This is Alexander Payne's first feature-length film in seven years. (He directed a segment of Paris, je t'aime since then.) His previous three feature-length films all earned at least one Oscar nomination and it would be a major shock if this film didn't also perform well during Awards Season. There are other films coming out this week, including a few earning good reviews, but their box office chances are dwarfed by this movie's potential.
