In this remake of Guiseppe Tornatore’s Stanno Tutti Bene, Robert De Niro plays a widower who takes a road trip to reconnect with his grown children (Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale, and Sam Rockwell), when they simultaneously cancel their trips home for the holidays. In the wake of their mother’s death, his kids have all become a bit estranged — and lead him to believe that they’re much happier and more successful than they really are. All he wants is the truth.
While we’re not sure this rather contrived premise would work with anyone else, we’ll watch Bobby De Niro in anything. What do you think?
Everybody’s Fine is due in theaters December 4th.
