THE INTOUCHABLES

Directed by Olivier Nakache & Eric Toledano
US release date: May 25, 2012

SYNOPSIS

An unprecedented box office success in France where it became the second most successful French film of all time, The Intouchables tells the fact based story of the unlikely friendship between a handicapped white millionaire and his unconventional Senegalese caretaker.

Paralyzed from the neck down and weary of the pitying attention of his live-in help, Philippe (François Cluzet, Tell No One) hires a recently paroled convict — who only applied for the job in order to continue receiving his welfare payments. Gradually, these two men from very different worlds grow close, sharing in the joy and pain of each other’s lives in this hilarious and heartwarming crowd-pleaser.


THE INTOUCHABLES opens in the US May 25, 2012. Check your local listings for showtimes and places.
