Deep message but not too interesting
This film contains and seems to be have been made for people that enjoy realistic based dramas. As shown in this movie, we see the course of life from lead James Franco and how his character's life has been affected from a tragic accident.
The film does start slow and is relatively not too interesting but it does get better eventually. Lot of still shots of the scenery and outdoors, with silent stares and long pauses between characters dialogue.
Overall, there isn't too much intrigued but we continue watching for the story to get better (as it does). The story telling and the fact that we see the film from different stages of Franco's life does make the film better, but as a whole, there isn't too much interesting there. Of course people will like this film for it's purpose and overall message but it could have been a lot better.
One thing which was slightly not needed and noticeable were the accents from the cast (mainly a supposedly French Canadian accent by Rachel McAdams- not sure as to why they made her character use an accent).
In the end, Every Thing will be Fine is decent but it doesn't nearly have a lasting impact or really "hit home" as the director or writer intended it doing.
