The Upside: There Is Always Light On The Upside
The Upside is more a social movie than a story or anything else. It has a social message that is a life is worth living. And the director Neil Burger took a different route to spread this message. Two people from different backgrounds come together and form a never before bond to live their lives the full.
Philip Lacasse is a wealthy person with plenty of dollars to spend on his enjoyment but he can’t because of his physical disability. He is a quadriplegic and needs a caretaker to look after his daily needs. At the same time, a parolee Dell Scott is also looking for a quick job to settle and rejoin to his ex-family that includes his wife and son. They come together for different reasons but soon they become good friends and forget their woes. Philip gives Dell a reason to smile and Dell teaches Philip how to live up to one’s dreams.
