London (ANI): Drew Barrymore's latest film Everybody's Fine
apparently bears streaks of her emotionally fractured childhood.
The actress plays Rosie Goode, the daughter of Frank (portrayed by
Robert De Niro) who mistakenly believes she has been living the Las
Vegas high life.
"Clearly everybody's not fine in the family but that's what
modern families do. They put on a front," the Mirror quoted her as
saying. The 35-year-old star continued: "It's a film about
connection and communicating. I found the whole concept intriguing.
As you grow up there is this shock at how distant people can
become, how much they grow apart and how difficult it is to carve
out time for your family and friends.
"Rosie puts on an act for her father because she knows he's
really proud that his little girl has realised all her dreams. "So
even though she's struggling, she's not going to show him that.
She's trying to do the right thing but, like her sister and
brothers, she''s stuck in a cycle that needs to be broken."
