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."
