UPSIDE

 Solomon "Soli" White seems to have all a high school senior could want. He has his material needs met, is popular, and has several colleges eager to give him a scholarship based on his skills as a lacrosse player. However, a devastating injury during a game has Soli literally looking a things from an entirely different angle. An injury to his brain causes him to suffer vertigo and upside down vision. At a meeting for those with visual impairments, Soli meets Wren. She is a committed believer who has been blind since birth. As their feelings for one another grow, they teach one another to examine their lives from other perspectives. Wren, a teacher who has discovered Soli's creative and profound ability to express himself, and a writing mentor who has had to struggle to recover from personal losses all 3 help guide Soli as he explores this new world. When you literally can't believe what you are seeing, you have no choice but to find out for yourself what is true.



This is an inspiring film that causes the viewer to consider if it is time to look at things from a fresh angle. When life turns UPSIDE down for you, will you know what is important? This is a very interesting movie! There is one scene that would cause many to scoff, but is not totally out of the realm of possibility. There are moments of humor that add an absolutely delightful touch. I believe the film is enjoyable for preteens and up. And, it definitely can lead to discussions on how life can be unfair, and turned upside down, but there is always hope.
