In the summer, all four kids bail on a reunion, so, against doctor’s orders, Frank decides to surprise each with a visit. He sets out to see his artist son in New York City, his daughter the ad exec in Chicago, his son the conductor on tour and presently in Denver, and his daughter who’s a performer in Vegas. None are as he imagines or hopes. Will they let him see themselves as they are, and can this dad adapt?
Plot: Eight months after the death of his wife, Frank Goode looks forward to a reunion with his four adult children. When all of them cancel their visits at the last minute, Frank, against the advice of his doctor, sets out on a road trip to reconnect with his offspring. As he visits each one in turn, Frank finds that his children’s lives are not quite as picture-perfect as they’ve made them out to be.

For What It Wanted to Achieve, It Hit Every Note
When I went to see this, I expected one of those progressive stories like he was getting ditched and as he went and surprised them things got better, they had laughs and things were healed sort of typical thing. But it definitely didn’t go down like that. There were about maybe 8 people in the theater when I went to see this movie, 3 of them were me and my 2 friends.
I have to say this movie was really sad and had a lot to say about child/parent relations. I am only 18 years old but I love these types of films and it made me think about how I would be with my parents when I get older and it really makes me want to make sure I keep a good relationship with my parents. My dad has always pushed me and wanted better for me in school and I have always been very average and against the grain, as it seems like David was.
I don’t know if the makers wanted the relation between Frank and his kids to seem empty, but that’s how it seemed to be throughout the film until the end. Even if it was lack of chemistry between actors, which of course I highly doubt it was, it works wonders and shows that Frank is like an alien to them and also that they are alien to him. When he learns that all of his children aren’t actually as successful, he seems like he’s struggling within to try and understand where they’re coming from instead of just showing his disappointment. When things finally come tumbling down towards the film’s climax, they come right back together as a family would. This movie made me tear up and really the only reason I didn’t cry was because I was with friends.
I could write a lot more about this but I’ll just suggest that if you’re looking for a good movie about family, or even if you just like De Niro(that’s why I saw it), you should definitely see this movie. It won’t disappoint.
This may be DeNiro’s Best Performance Since Awakenings
I saw this movie last night in a crowded theatre with persons of varying ages. At the conclusion of the film, I noticed smiles and tears in the eyes of the older viewers and some boredom and rush to leave in the younger ones. This is a movie for parents and will probably not appeal much to the under 25 set.
That said, this is a beautiful, heart-felt, and sometimes painful story of a father recognizing and coming to grips with the reality of his parenting and his lack of control over his children’s lives. It is about truth and how we try to spare others pain or discomfort. It is about how many parents still see their grown up children as small children who we are responsible for.
While the supporting cast turn in good performances, this is Robert DeNiro’s movie. It is his best performance since Awakenings (he deserved that Oscar, and not just the nomination).
I suspect that this film will get a lot of nominations, but don’t think it will win many awards. I base that on the idea that they younger voters have not yet been in the shoes of the older ones and will not be fully able to appreciate the character or his growth and understanding.
