I’ve haven’t seen “The Upside,” and I’m pretty sure I never will. The movie, which comes out Jan. 11, stars “Breaking Bad” actor Bryan Cranston as a quadriplegic billionaire named Phillip Lacasse who hires a former felon to be his caretaker.
So far, the movie has received mediocre ratings — but that’s not why I refuse to see it. As a disabled woman, what I’m not OK with is that Cranston is an able-bodied man playing a disabled character.
