Why watch this film?

This American remake of the touching French film 'Intouchables' which was a success all around the world features a star-studded cast with Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Kevin Hart (Ride Along) and Nicole Kidman (The Others). The story follows the same line as the original: a middle aged quadriplegic who hires a caretaker with little experience, but who opens him up to a world of discoveries. With more American-style situations, 'The Upside' makes use of the great chemistry between Hart and Cranston to engage the viewer.
