Everybody's Fine is a film everyone who is a DeNiro fan should see and those who don't particularly favor him definitely should watch this great film! He is so natural as always. Never see him acting or working for it... he just climbs into the skin of his characters and goes with it! The story in this movie is familiar to many who have family members who are not exactly perfect, but who is? Dad goes across country to see how well his adult kids are doing after becoming a widower. It's all about communicating with each other and taking life one day at a time! Fabulous movie!

"I went by myself, a 62 year-old with 4 grown sons. I sat in my old hunting coat and sniffled and cried for however long it was. I think De Niro wears his role with both an ease and a genius few possess. I'll get the DVD as soon as it's released. I know De Niro's own real-life dad passed shortly before his "Bronx Tales" was released, and perhaps, in some zen-like chi, this kinda closes a circle on the dad-stuff there. I met De Niro once, and was extremely impressed with his character (as in 'integrity', not as in an acting role)."

"As a big fan of Robert De Niro, I was excited to see him appearing in another dramatic role. De Niro appears as a widower who embarks on a cross-country trip to visit each of his four children after they all cancel their plans to visit him at his home in Elmira, New York. Against his physician's advise he sets out and each of the four stops is a disappointment as he slowly realizes, by their thinly veiled excuses, that something isn't "right". A perfectionistic father who coated electrical wiring for a living, he expected his children to reach the top of their chosen fields(an artist, an advertising executive, a musician / conductor, and a dancer). As the story unfolds it become apparent that the kids have gone to great lengths to present a facade of success and happiness. He comes to realize that the negative details of his children's lives have always been hidden from him...even by his now deceased wife. In a touching scene when he insists on the truth regarding one of his children, he responds with, "No, No...tell me it's not true." The bottom line: this family kept secrets and secrets benefit no one. This very thought-provoking film is a real tear-jerker, so be prepared. I disagree with the opinions of many of the professional critics. This was an incredible film! Robert De Niro approached his role with tenderness and sensitivity and in my opinion was the top performance of the year. This film will be a definite addtion to my DVD collection. I highly recommend it!"
Beautifully melancholic tale of a father trying to reconnect

"Kirk Jones wrote and directed "Everybody's Fine". This is an wonderfully quiet film that follows the lonely Frank Goode (Robert De Niro) who goes on a trip to visit his children (Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale, Sam Rockwell), since they were too busy to visit him. Unbeknown to Frank is that his artist son, who is in Mexico, has run into some problems, but the other children are trying to cover up this fact. We follow Frank, who is a kind, and intelligent man, who has never really been close to his children, and who is making the effort to bridge this gap late in his life. This is a heartfelt exploration about a father trying to connect with his children which inevitably nurtures a feeling of goodwill and love."
