This Meetup is a joint event with the Central Arkansas Independent Film Lovers Meetup.
With six awards and nine nominations, Intouchables has swept the international film festivals off their collective feet. It is the second most successful French-language film of all time. Currently #80 of IMDb's top films, the film has a very respectable 8.6/10 rating. Rotten Tomatoes ranks it 75% fresh, with 92% of the audience responding favorably.
The story is based on the true story of a wealthy, quadriplegic risk taker who has lost his wife in an accident. His world turns upside down when he hires a young, good-humored, black, Muslim, ex-con from the projects as his caretaker.
This is a Belgian film in French with English subtitles.
The film starts at 7:00, so we'll meet in the lobby of the theater a few minutes before.
