Indie Trailer Sunday: Heartwarming French Drama 'The Intouchables'
We've got two (non-April Fools) indie trailers to feature today, both couldn't be more unlike. This first one is for a heartwarming award-winning French drama called The Intouchables. The film tells the true story of "two men who should never have met" - a quadriplegic aristocrat named Philippe, François Cluzet, who was injured in a paragliding accident, and a young man from the projects, named Driss, played by Omar Sy, who won the César in France this year for this role, their equivalent of the Oscars. This looks incredibly charming, full of emotion, and just a damn good story, and I highly suggest watch this if you have a heart.
