The Intouchables (2011)

The Intouchables (2011)Watch the trailer!

This pairing came about because of a class Jeff taught at the American University of Bulgaria on Media Criticism. His students chose films to analyze, some of which Jeff hadn't seen before, and the two films chosen for this pairing were both new to him (and to Buddy and Chad as well) and were films he never would have seen had it not been for his students' choice! Co-directed and co-written by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, "The Intouchables" is a 2011 masterpiece about a guy named Driss (Omar Sy) from the wrong side of the tracks who trips into a life-changing opportunity to become the primary caregiver for a wealthy quadriplegic man named Phillipe (Francois Cluzet). The two form an unlikely friendship, even when his secretary Magalie (Audrey Fleurot), his daughter Elisa (Alba Gaïa Bellugi), his housekeeper Yvonne (Anne Le Ny) and his lawyer Antoine (Grégoire Oestermann) all disapprove. The film is based on a true story, a gentle, good-hearted, touching tale about the power of kindness and honesty, and it surprised all three of the podcast crew with its heart and incredible visuals! You even get to see the real individuals the movie is based on at the conclusion of the film!
