Multimillionaire Philip (Bryan Cranston from Breaking bad) is in a wheelchair after an accident and needs help with everything. When he seeks a new assistant, Dell (comedian Kevin Hart), a recently released criminal, shows up for an interview. He completely lacks qualifications and training for the job and seeks it solely to get signatures to his social secretary so that he can continue to acknowledge contributions. But against all odds, he is employed, and an odd friendship is initiated. The Upside is based on the French film An Unexpected Friendship and in one of the other roles we see Nicole Kidman.
