The bad news is that the film adaptation of local author Jonathan Evison's spectacular novel The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving has been changed. It's now The Fundamentals of Caring, a title that sacrifices specificity at the altar of sentiment.
But! Here's the good news: it stars Paul Rudd, so I will still be there for this movie whenever it opens locally. And here's the even-better news: it was announced last week that The Fundamentals of Caring will be the Closing Film at this coming year's Sundance film festival, a position of pride that indicates confidence in the quality of the film. Might we get to see it at next year's SIFF? Here's hoping.
