Movie Trailer Tuesday - Everybody's Fine

Frank is a recent widower who is looking forward to having all his kids home for a much anticipated visit. At the last minute, plans fall through and they all end up canceling. So, Frank decides he will surprise them and sets out to travel across the country, visiting each of them. What he finds with each visit is not quite what he was expecting. He begins to question his relationship with the kids and the role he played as their father.

This movie is fantastic! Robert De Niro is amazing, as always. I literally cried (bawled!) throughout this entire film. The flashback scenes where Frank still sees his children as when they were young tore at my heartstrings. As a parent, it would be devastating to me if my adult kids were scattered throughout the country and basically out of touch with me. The movie really makes you take a look at family and how important it is.

Rated PG-13 for thematic elements and brief strong language

Hi Kari, I love Dinero. He's been my favorite actor since the 70s. Anything he does, I go and see or rent and see. But this one I missed when it came to town. Glad you reminded me to pick up a copy and chek it out.
