STARRING Robert De Niro, Kate Beckinsale, Drew Barrymore
WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY Kirk Jones

In a remake of the 1990 Italian film Stanno Tutti Bene, Robert De Niro plays a New York telephone-factory worker who realizes, after the death of his wife, that he doesn’t know how to communicate with his kids without her being there to mediate. Writer and director Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee) promises audiences a side of De Niro rarely seen on film. ”He’s playing a regular, blue-collar, working dad,” he says. Kate Beckinsale, who costars as his daughter, admits she was terrified to work with her acting hero: ”You’re always aware you’re in the presence of somebody whose photograph you had Scotch-taped to your fridge during college.”
