French Film Screening: "Intouchables"

September 20, 2018 - 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm (already occurred)
King Hall, French House Common Room

This 2011 dramatic comedy, directed by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, is one of the greatest successes of the French film industry, and is based on a true story:
"When Driss, an ex-con from the projects, is hired to take care of an eccentric French aristocrat named Philippe, his newfound job quickly becomes an unpredictable adventure. Speeding a Maserati through Paris, seducing women and paragliding over the Alps is just the beginning, as Driss turns the often humorous world of upper-class Parisian society upside-down. As this unlikely duo overcome diversity of every flavor in this true story, they also shatter their preconceptions of love, life and each other." Film will be screened in French with English subtitles. Refreshments will be served!
