Paul Rudd Stars in The Fundamentals of Caring

Paul Rudd stars in The Fundamentals of Caringthe Sundance closing film, scooped up by Netflix, which will be available on the streaming service on June 24.

The film follows Ben (Rudd), a retired writer with some not insignificant personal problems (including a busted marriage he can't move on from) who becomes a caregiver for his first client, Trevor (Craig Roberts), an angry 18-year-old with muscular dystrophy and a way with brutal one-liners. Ben and Trevor take an impromptu road trip to all the country's most absurd places that Trevor longs to see, with the World's Deepest Pit the most sought after destination. As road trip movies demand, they pick up a third member, sassy runaway and a mother-to-be (Selena Gomez), and the three of them are off on a journey of self-actualization (or realization, or something) in what looks to be a pretty winning film.
