The Upside

The first comedy of the year is out!

THE UPSIDE starring Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston and Nicole Kidman along with others came out today. I went to the Duluth’s Marcus Theatre and watched it right away. Well, since the movie was adapted from The Intouchables, and also the fact ‘break is coming to an end soon’ pushed me.

Besides the expected and usual thrill of seeing Kevin Hart play an unconventional role in a serious setting, getting to see Bryan Cranston experiment with his versatility was a treat. Nicole Kidman plays a role that fits as well as compliments her genre of acting.

I thoroughly enjoyed the movie! May it be the puns or cross references, the acting or the actors themselves, the narrative or the plot, the direction or the cast…it was an excellent milieu. The story captures and touches on a lot of intricate nuances of life that one goes throughout their being. The emotions and the spans for how long these emotions last was one of the key takeaways I resonated with. The multiple ups and downs until the sea is calm and the ship sails smooth.

The trailer of the movie speaks volumes about itself. However, here’s how I would briefly describe the same:

A multi-wealthy person, Philip, becomes quadriplegic after an accident is looking for a live-in carer in his NY penthouse to help and assist with daily essential activities and such. Dell, a desperate-for-job and struggling parolee, who is trying to make it up to his ex and son is hired for the job. And the movie is a beautiful chapter of how the friendship flourished and taught them both to live their fullest life.

Hope you get a chance to watch this amazing feel-good move soon.
