The Fundamentals of Caring movie full length review - Description Of Movie
The Fundamentals Of Caring
When watching, The Fundamentals Of Caring, my emotions on the filmed varied. I felt emotions such as sadness, happiness, laughter, and lastly love. This film fit all of these emotions in so well, it allowed the movie to come together better than a lot I have previously seen. While watching, I enjoyed the certain style that it was filmed. It was what caught my attention most which then made me realize the certain great emotions that I felt throughout the movie All of these aspects are to my eyes what makes a great film.
As I was watching the film, the emotion that was portrayed made me want to know more and more as it was going on. The curiosity of not knowing what the outcome would be until the end of the movie made me more intrigued. The impression I received from the beginning of the film versus the end of the film was the complete opposite. In the beginning of the film I did not believe it was going to catch my attention. But, by the ending of the movie I was wishing it was not over.
In the movie, The Fundamentals Of Caring, 3 main critiques caught my eye. The first I can describe to you would be in the beginning of the film when Trevor and Ben first met. I felt as if this scene wanted you to have more emotions to it then what was perceived. When they were being introduced, Trevor tried to do as much as he could to make Ben realize he did not want to be Trevor's caregiver. But, Ben held out for all of the sarcastic emotion Trevor was portraying and that is what made them connect even stronger than they originally thought they would. Trevor responds to his mom, "he's the one" during the interview at the beginning of the film showing you that they will soon have a bond none expected.
The background of the main character, Trevor, is what I am going to critique to you next. Although we know Trevor is in a wheelchair, the story behind him is something greater. When Trevor was three and diagnosed with muscular dystrophy his father decided that he no longer wanted to be in his life. With this, Trevor never really had a stable "father like" figure to give him inspiration. His mother always wanted Trevor to have contact with his father but his father never wanted anything to do with him. In result to this, Trevor's mother decided upon writing him letters as if they were coming from his father, which lead to an awful heartbreak when later in the movie Trevor goes to visit his father and figures out the harsh truth of his father still not wanting contact with him.
Ben also has an intriguing background just like Trevor. Throughout the movie they show certain flashbacks that lead you to uncovering Ben's life story and figuring out why he portrays himself the way he does. Ben is currently separated from his wife but refuses to sign the divorce papers she is trying to push upon him. Later on in the movie, you figure out that the flashbacks lead back to the death of Ben's son. Ben refuses to sign the papers due to him never being able to get over the fact of his son's death, he feels as if she is all he has left of his son and he doesn't want to let that go. At the end of the movie with the help of Trevor and their experience with one another, he let go of all of the bad emotions and insecurities through a novel that he ended up writing based upon their time with one another.
In result, by the end of the movie, they both realized that they have helped one another more than they have originally planned to do. Ben helped Trevor get out of his comfort zone by taking him to experience new things that he always wanted to but never thought he had the capability of doing. Trevor helped Ben in a way of showing him that trusting his love with someone else wouldn't come back to be a burden. Ben had to open up to Trevor to show him that he was there to care for him and protect him with the things he could not do for himself. The quality of this film was astonishing and I believe it portrayed many emotions that will catch future viewers attention as well.
