CineArts Films at Peter White Public Library, a series devoted to foreign
and independent films, will show the movie “The Intouchables” on Friday,
September 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room. This French film stars
the smiling Omar Sy who plays Driss, a young, unemployed Senegalese
immigrant hired to be the caregiver for a very wealthy quadriplegic,
Philippe, played by François Cluzet. The relationship between the two
leads is delightful in this very touching and funny film. The movie is
based on a true story discovered by the directors in a documentary film.
Abdel Sellou, the real Driss, published his memoir, You Changed My Life,
shortly after the film was released.
In French and English. 112 minutes. Introduced by Julia Dehring, an NMU
student. Free admission. Call 226-4309 or visit www.pwpl.info for more
