THE UPSIDE
(PG-13) 126min
Feb 15 - 21, 6:00 & 8:30
Inspired by a true story, this English language remake of the French hit The Untouchables is a hilarious, poignant and heartfelt comedy. Kevin Hart stars as a recently paroled and sharp-tongued felon from the projects. He is shocked when a quadriplegic billionaire (Bryan Cranston) offers him a position as his personal care assistant, and so is the man’s business manager (Nicole Kidman) who doesn’t trust this newcomer. But these two men form an unusual and unlikely friendship that helps the older man heal, as he’s lost his will to live after the death of his wife, and affords the younger man an opportunity to restart his relationship with his child and ex-wife. Directed by Neil Berger (The Illusionist, Divergent) the actors playing genuine characters have great chemistry that make this a fun, uplifting film.
