The Intouchables

Premiering tonight in most theaters here in the States, The Intouchables is a true story of two men who should never have met — a quadriplegic aristocrat who was injured in a paragliding accident and a young man from the projects. Directed by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, who first discovered this story in a 2004 documentary, this movie stars Francois Cluzet and Omar Sy.

In just nine weeks after the movie's release in France last November, it became the second most successful French film of all time (in number of spectators) in that country's box office.
