Roberts & Rudd

Netflix has released the first trailer for the indie comedy The Fundamentals of Caring, which stars Paul Rudd, Craig Roberts, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Ehle, Megan Ferguson and Frederick Weller.

Based on the novel by Jonathan Evison and written, directed and produced by Rob Burnett, the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, getting bought up by Netflix for an estimated $7 million.

The Fundamentals of Caring will be released on Netflix on June 3rd. Looks pretty good. Shame it’s not getting a limited theatrical release. Watch the trailer below.

The film follows the story of Ben, a retired writer who becomes a caregiver after suffering a personal tragedy. After 6 weeks of training, Ben meets his first client, Trevor, a foul-mouthed 18-year-old with muscular dystrophy. One paralyzed emotionally, one paralyzed physically, Ben and Trevor take an impromptu road trip to all the places Trevor has become obsessed with while watching the local news, including their holy grail: the World’s Deepest Pit. Along the way, they pick up a smart-mouthed runaway and a mother-to-be who help test the pair’s survival skills outside of their calculated existence as they come to understand the importance of hope and true friendship.
