Movie Diary 1/9/2019

The Upside (Neil Burger, 2019). Remake of Les Intouchables. Bryan Cranston is a wealthy quadriplegic man, Kevin Hart his ex-con personal attendant. Straight formula, yet there are a handful of scenes where the two actors get at something. Hart continues to be one of the most human of movie comedians, his offscreen gaffes notwithstanding. Nicole Kidman, who apparently does not want to stop working, is also in the cast.
