The film starring Paul Rudd and Selena Gomez is set to make its streaming debut in June.
Netflix has announced a premiere date for its latest original movie. 'The Fundamentals of Caring' will be available for streaming exclusively through Netflix on June 24.
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 sassy 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.
'The Fundamentals of Caring' is based on the novel by Jonathan Evison, and the film is written, directed, and produced by Rob Burnett. The cast includes Paul Rudd, Craig Roberts, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Ehle, Megan Ferguson, and Frederick Weller. After SVOD rights were acquired by Netflix, the movie premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival in January as the Closing Night film. In addition to streaming, the movie will also get a theatrical awards qualifying run.
Other upcoming Netflix premieres include 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' season two on April 15, 'Special Correspondents' on April 29, 'Marseille' on May 5, the second season of 'Grace and Frankie' on May 6, 'Chelsea' on May 11, season two of 'Chef's Table' on May 27, 'The Do-Over' on May 27, the documentary 'Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru' on July 15, and 'Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh' on July 29.
