Worth Watching - Oct 28: The Diving Bell and the Butterfly Trailer
If you've seen The Sea Inside and liked it, then I recommend The Diving Bell and the Butterfly as well. It's touching, it's heartwarming, it's funny, and it leaves you with a smile on your face. This is one of the year's best films, despite being mostly in French, and is definitely worth seeing if you appreciate wonderful cinema. I'll even be rooting for it for the Best Foreign Language Oscar! The premise is that this successful man becomes paralyzed after a stroke and is only capable of moving his eye and blinking to communicate, that's it. You follow his story from his point-of-view and in his mind, literally looking out of one eye, but it's so perfectly executed that it's not annoying or bothersome.
You can read my great review from the Toronto Film Fest. I really loved this film and would honestly suggest it to all of you out there who I know appreciate good indie cinema!
