The film, based on a true story, follows the story of “Phillip”, a wealthy quadriplegic and his new caretaker, “Dell” who helps him with his day-to-day regimen. The film stars Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart, and Nicole Kidman.

Mason gave the movie a 9/10, as she believed the movie to not only be absolutely hilarious, but also emotional and heartfelt.
