The Upside trailer made me laugh, cry, and filled me with inspiration to live the best life I can. And that’s only the trailer.
Based on a true story and inspired by French film The Intouchables, the real-life Philippe Pozzo di Borgo and Abdel Sellou are portrayed in this American version by Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston. The story follows a quadriplegic (Cranston) who hires a new and inexperienced caregiver (Hart) and explores the unique friendship between them.
Even though this is technically a remake and not something new and original, I’m still glad a story like this is getting more attention. We need uplifting stories because they inspire us to live better – to live the kind of life that’s worth living no matter what the obstacles.
If it’s anything like its predecessor I’m pretty sure I’m going to love it. And then go watch the movie to support these awesome creatives.
