RT Freshness: 48%

Critic Consensus: “A calm, charismatic performance from Robert De Niro nearly saves the movie, but ultimately, Everybody’s Fine has the look and feel of a stereotypical Christmas dramedy.”

Directed by: Jim Sheridan

Plot:  When a marine goes missing overseas, his brother becomes close to his family but things get complicated when he’s found and returns home.

RT Freshness: 63%

Critic Consensus: “It plays more like a traditional melodrama than the Susanne Bier film that inspired it, but Jim Sheridan’s Brothers benefits from rock-solid performances by its three leads.”
