Ben can be you, at your lowest, at your highest.

Ben is you, at your saddest, at your funniest.

Elsa has been your sister, your mother, your wife.

Dot was docile, beautiful, simple.

Trevor can, has, was lost, neglected, quiet.

Paul Rudd is the perfect Ben for the film, The Fundamentals of Caring. His kind eyes, honest smile and hardworking attitude are too cool (not sure if he is like that in real life) but Ben is him. Jennifer Ehle as Elsa, the mother of Trevor is not your typical mother so points on that, she is confident, efficient and focused. Perhaps we are seeing her after years of dealing with a son like Trevor who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).

The Fundamentals of Caring, Netflix movie is a story about how a Care Giver comes to terms with his loss of his child. Trevor is the kid with DMD and he and his mum have relocated to the US and needs a new caregiver. In comes Ben and an adventure unfolds both outdoors and deep within each of their hearts.

Take this amazing trip, it will be worth the road.
