Movie Nights

The Upside is a 2017 American comedy drama remake of the French 2011 film The Intouchables, which was itself inspired by the life of Philippe Pozzo di Borgo.

Philip is a disabled white billionaire, who feels that life is not worth living. To help him in his day to day routine, he hires Del, an African American parolee, trying to reconnect with his estranged wife. What begins as a professional relationship develops into a friendship as Del shows his grouchy charge that life is worth living.

It is the third remake of The Intouchables, after the Tamil film Thozha, and the Argentinian film Inseparables.
