3 Reasons Why You Need to Watch The NETFLIX Original, The Fundamentals Of Caring
1. Awareness of Muscular Dystrophy
According to the CDC, An estimated 1 of every 5,600 to 7,700 males 5 through 24 years of age had DBMD. Trevor, the main protagonist, suffers from muscular dystrophy while his care taker, whom is dealing with the loss of his son, provides guidance and support through comedy and compassion. Muscular Dystrophy is a group of diseases that cause progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass. Some people who have muscular dystrophy will eventually lose the ability to walk and some may have trouble breathing or swallowing.
2. Learn Gratitude
There are not many films out on Netflix that can grant you a rewarding experience as much as The Fundamentals Of Caring grants. You will laugh then tear and then laugh harder as you tear more. Experiencing muscular dystrophy through the experiences of Trevor and his caretaker, Benjamin, allow you as a viewer to truly be grateful for how grand life can be. Life is all about your perspective.
3. Hilarious Cast
Trevor, played by Craig Roberts, and Benjamin, played by Paul Rudd, present pure comedic harmony for viewers at home. Even Selena Gomez, whom plays as a sassy hitchhiker, adds the perfect amount of fan-love to the movie.
