Film Synopsis:

Based on an inspiring true story, Intouchables tells the tale of an unlikely friendship between two men. Against the advice of his friends, wealthy quadriplegic Philippe hires ex-con Driss to be his caregiver. The relationship that develops heals each man in extraordinary ways as Philippe learns to live outside the confines of his wheelchair and Driss learns to live outside the confines of his past. Nominated for 11 Cesar Awards in 2012 (with Omar Sy's Driss winning a Best Actor award), Intouchables is a touching, hilarious story about second chances.
