The Fundamentals of Caring
Paul Rudd, Craig Roberts, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Ehle, Megan Ferguson, Frederick Weller / Fiction / English
A caregiver and the young man he looks after head off on a trip.
Paul Rudd consolidates his ‘nicest man in film’ credentials in this thoroughly charming and uplifting comedy-drama, starring as a newly licensed caregiver whose first job is working with isolated but amusingly sarcastic young Brit Trevor (Craig Roberts) who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). The pair head off on a road trip to visit oddball Americana, picking up sassy hitchhiker Dot (Selena Gomez) along the way. The witty banter and warm sense of humour make this a real delight. [12A]
