The Intouchables

A.k.a. "Intouchables", "Untouchable". Philippe (Francois Cluzet) is a wealthy Parisian left paralyzed from the neck down after a paragliding accident. Driss (Omar Sy) is a young Sengalese man with a criminal record. When Driss applies for a job as Philippe's live-in caretaker as a formality that will allow him to continue to collect welfare, he's shocked to learn that he's been hired. Despite their very different backgrounds and outlooks on life, the two men quickly form a strong bond, teaching each other important life lessons about acceptance, respect and the true meaning of friendship in the process. Based on a true story, this poignant comedy/drama was a worldwide hit that garnered great acclaim and incredible reviews.
