I rented this movie, and this is soo true to life, there are a lot of people who have been in a homeless situation like this, this is not soo much, about a person ♿ disable, but a relationship between two human beings. Most people who are disabled ♿, don't have that ability to make the choice, on who is to care for their lives. And they are bumbarted, by a slew of people in their lives taking care of their needs. I love 😍 the humor, as well as the drama 🎭. We as Direct Care Workers are apprecia

Considering this is based on a true story, it's tough to read the comments from some folks below stating "Not a good story" - Perhaps we are so caught up in fictional stories now, we care less about what actually happens during real human interactions. 2 powerhouse actors knocked this story out of the ball park in an emotionally driven documentary style film that is sure to capture the hearts of those that still have them. Witty all the way through, with so emotional scenes with what some folks have to experience on a daily. A must watch for all!

I didn't know i would enjoy this movie as much as I did. Love the relationship between both the actors, KH is a funny individual. He really got into this role and made it his own. I laughed the entire time. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because I didn't like the ending. Overall it was a sensational movie. Definitely worth watching again, I've already recommend it to some people.
