The Fundamentals of Caring

Well, I’m not quite sure what to say, it’s a wanna be?  Paul Rudd tries his hand at being serious but does best when he is himself, goofy.  His moments of serious contemplation are when he acts instead of “just being”.  He’s a talented actor and should continue to rely on his talent.  The story is standard, boy has a life threatening illness, caregiver hired to help becomes involved.  Father’dom and moving on are part of the running theme but what struck me is whether or not we have an illness, don’t we all need a caregiver of some sort to help us at various points in our lives to get through our challenges?  Does it really take caring for someone else to make life worth while?  It’s a netflix original so perhaps I was  expecting a bit more from this “indy” but overall it was nice.  Watch it with the girls and a few bottles of wine if you must.  Date night if you want a cozy night in by the fireplace.
