Charming Netflix Original starring Paul Rudd hitting the streaming service June 24th.
At the end of June Netflix will broaden its offering of original movies with new film Fundamentals of Caring starring Paul Rudd (Parks and Recreation, Ant-Man), Selena Gomez (Spring Breakers) and Craig Roberts (Submarine, Skins).
Written, directed and produced by Rob Burnett and based on a novel by Jonathan Evison Fundamentals of Caring tells a story of a man suffering an incredible amount of loss who enrolls in a class about care-giving that changes his perspective on life.
The film follows the story of Ben (Paul Rudd), a retired writer who becomes a caregiver after suffering a personal tragedy. After 6 weeks of training, Ben meets his first client, Trevor (Craig Roberts), a foul-mouthed 18-year-old with muscular dystrophy. One paralyzed emotionally, one paralyzed physically, Ben and Trevor take an impromptu road trip to all the places Trevor has become obsessed with while watching the local news, including their holy grail: the World’s Deepest Pit. Along the way, they pick up a smart-mouthed runaway and a mother-to-be who help test the pair’s survival skills outside of their calculated existence as they come to understand the importance of hope and true friendship.
