This and "The Green Book"...


would make a great double feature!

reply

I concur, both grate moviez but Green Book is on another level tho I enjoyed both a lot.

reply

:) And they're BOTH based on true stories, though GREEN BOOK (besides being somewhat older*), is based on a MUCH earlier story, set in 1962 or something. THE UPSIDE is a more modern setting, 1993, with early cellphones in one scene..(CLUELESS, released a few years later, really popularized cellphones).

*Though confusingly, THE UPSIDE was already released a year of so by Weinstein, then the #MeToo - Weinstein scandal broke out. Haven't noticed if credits, and thus copyright were put there as well so it'd read "MMXVII" instead of "MMXCIX".
