Being in the film business, we love movies. Rarely does a Friday roll around without us getting excited about a new film’s opening. This weekend, our hearts are set on catching the just-released holiday movie Everybody’s Fine, a remake of Oscar winner Giuseppe Tornatore’s Stanno Tutti Bene.
The movie follows a widower (Academy Award winner Robert De Niro) on his impromptu road trip to visit his grown children during the holidays. In addition to De Niro, the cast is an ensemble of many of our favorite actors including Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale, and Sam Rockwell. Although it is a holiday movie, we have been duly warned that Everybody’s Fine is “a prickly, bittersweet weeper about a father’s attempts at reconnection and reconciliation with his … far-flung children.
In addition to its intriguing trailer and heartwarming family holiday movie theme, we can’t wait to see Everybody’s Fine because of another good reason. This Miramax production was filmed for the most part in the beautiful, idyllic towns of Connecticut – and we are proud to say that the Connecticut Film Office is one of our very own clients.
