Robert De Niro, Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell star in Everybody’s Fine, a remake of Giuseppe Tornatore’s Stanno Tutti Bene which opens here in the UK on 26th February 2010.
Frank Goode (De Niro) has spent his adult life working in a local wire factory earning every dollar he can to support his family. Recently retired, he realises that over the years he has spent too little time with his four children and that it’s time to reconnect.
His late wife was always his main point of contact with his kids but Frank decides it’s now his responsibility to keep an eye on them and is inspired to invite the whole extended family for a barbeque weekend.
Preparations go well until one by one, such is modern life, they all have good reason to cancel. Despite a strict warning from his doctor, Frank takes matters into his own hands and packs a bag before setting out on a journey across the US with the intention of surprising each of his children and wallowing in their success and happiness.
