Frank Goode lives by himself in Elmira, NY, a recent widower with heart trouble, retired from a factory job, proud of having pushed his adult children toward success. In the summer, all four kids bail on a reunion, so, against doctor's orders, Frank decides to surprise each with a visit. He sets out to see his artist son in New York City, his daughter the ad exec in Chicago, his son the conductor on tour and presently in Denver, and his daughter who's a performer in Vegas. None are as he imagines or hopes. Will they let him see themselves as they are, and can this dad adapt? Written by  

A road trip of self-discovery, this movie is very heartwarming..
It has an indie feel to it and the characters are very well written..
The actors just play it just right, meaning they underplay their already superstar status..

So it's
Robert De Niro as Frank the father    
Drew Barrymore     as Rosie the performer daughter from Las Vegas   
Kate Beckinsale as Amy the ad exec
Sam Rockwell as Robert the touring conductor

It's like a good book, I recommend it to parents with adult children..
