Ousmane and Mrs Sommers are both humble people living ordinary lives — he in France and she in the Channel Islands. He has a son, and she has a daughter. They both are students in London. On July 7, 2005, without any news of their dear children, they decide to start a journey together in search of the two teenagers. And, although they come from different religious backgrounds, Ousmane is Muslim and Mrs Sommers’ Christian, they will share the same hope in finding their children alive. Putting aside their cultural differences, they will give each other the strength to continue the search and maintain the faith.
Robert De Niro, Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell are set to star in the Kirk Jones-directed ‘Everybody’s Fine.’
The family-drama film is a remake of the Giuseppe Tornatore film “Stanno tutti bene” with Jones rewriting the project.
De Niro will play a widower who realizes that his deceased wife was his only connection to his children. He decides to take a road trip to reconnect with each of his grown kids, discovering that their lives are far from perfect.
The film will begin shooting in Connecticut later this month.
