I kind of love every movie about grown children going home to their parents — Home for the Holidays, Junebug, The Family Stone. There's just so much fodder for humor and emotion.
But in Everybody's Fine, none of Robert De Niro's grown children go home to visit him, sending him on a journey to visit each one of his offspring. Sam Rockwell, Drew Barrymore, and Kate Beckinsale star as the trio of "kids" — pretty cute cast, right? You know what's even cuter? De Niro as a caring father and grandpa. Don't get me wrong — I love him in the heavy, dramatic stuff, but when I see him as a family man, I melt like butter. Family matters aren't always all lightness though, and it looks like we can expect some complicated interactions, too. Even if it's a bit sappy, I'm looking forward to this one.
