The Fundamentals of Caring is an emotional, and witty film adaptation of the Jonathan Evison novel. The movie stars Paul Rudd, Selena Gomez, Craig Roberts, Jennifer Ehle, Megan Ferguson and Frederick Weller.
The story follows Ben (played by Rudd) as he makes a transition to becoming a personal caregiver to an 18 year old with muscular dystrophy, Trevor (played by Roberts). Trevor is really interested in the world’s worst tourist traps, so the pair decide to take a road trip to visit them. Along the way they find Dot (played by Gomez) a young runaway who ends up joining the duo. During the trip Trevor reveals that he wants to confront his father who left when he was only three years old.
The film premiered earlier this year at The Sundance Film Festival, and Netflix bought the rights for a reported $7 million. You can check out The Fundamentals of Caring on June 24th on Netflix. Check out the trailer below!
