Unsurprisingly, the Rotten Tomatoes score for "Everybody's Fine" is sinking as we speak. Believe you me, I was not expecting to like this film -- it reaks of typical, holiday season fluff. And yet, I was taken aback by the craft of it, and the gentle ease with which (most of) it unfolds.
And I may as well fess up: some later scenes, however obvious, really got my tears flowing. There, I said it. Catch my review of "Everybody's Fine," now online at SouthPhillyReview.com. CLICK HERE.
