'The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving,' the movie version

Seattle Times ArtsPage - Thu, 01/08/2015 - 5:05pm

Bainbridge Island writer Jonathan Evison's bittersweet 2012 novel "The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving" is about to get a much wider audience - it's being made into a movie starring Paul Rudd, an actor best known for his roles in comedies such as "Knocked Up" and "Clueless."

Evison's book told the story of Ben Benjamin, a young father grappling with unimaginable loss who becomes a caregiver to a teenager with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Deeply scarred by their own experiences, the two eventually form a close bond. Loosely based on experiences in Evison's own life, the movie will begin filming in Atlanta in January, according to the entertainment magazine Variety.

Rob Burnett,  executive producer of “The Late Show With David Letterman,” will direct, and is adapting the script. Evison said he has not been involved in writing the screenplay. Some changes have been made to the story, but "I think the movie will capture the spirit of the book, and that's what's most important to me ," he wrote in an e-mail.

"Revised Fundamentals" might seem like an unlikely film candidate, given its tough material, but reviews of the novel noted that it had a big heart. "'The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving" deals with sorrow and disability and all the things that can go wrong in life. But mostly Evison has given us a salty-sweet story about absorbing those hits and taking a risk to reach beyond them. What a great ride," said the Seattle Times review.
