An irreverent, uplifting comedy about friendship, trust and human possibility, ‘The Intouchables’ was a box office phenomenon in its native France and has been embraced around the world becoming the most watched French-language film of all time. Based on a true story of friendship between a handicapped millionaire and his street smart ex-con caretaker, ‘The Intouchables’ depicts an unlikely camaraderie rooted in honesty and humor between two people who, on the surface, would seem to have nothing in common.
