AnnaRose happens to be the daughter of the late Roger King, an American and television media executive for King World Productions and CBS. The process of making Good Enoughand what went into it is ultimately dedicated to him. “This film, in many ways, is a tribute to the genius of my father, a man gone far too soon at the age of 63. It was heartbreaking to me to understand there was still so much more that I wanted to learn from him, and ask him about the business of filmmaking and television. Nevertheless, I sought out professionals and others who knew him best- and Good Enough represents that rite of passage, as told via my character Lorna Flynn who sets out to find her father’s long, lost brother, a potential uncle she never knew about.”

AnnaRose King Opens Up About Her First Feature Film ‘Good Enough’.
“I am a child of divorced parents,” King told Us. “As a very young kid, I flew a lot. I was one of those little kids, like in the movie, who got their wings and I did a lot of unaccompanied minor flights — so I felt connected to a flight attendant, to be honest. Life on the road and never being settled in one place, but it’s true that part is fiction. There are other aspects that are true, but you just can’t mine your own life and then expect people to be interested in it. So I dramatized.”
