Untouchable Presented by Talkies Community Cinema

This charming, uplifting French drama is based on a true story that follows the superficially mismatched friendship between a wealthy quadriplegic and his ex-con carer – brilliantly played by François Cluzet and Omar Sy. Each has his own disadvantage – one physical following a paragliding accident, the other socioeconomic. Both characters are enormously sympathetic and the film’s heart is very much in the right place. Hugely enjoyable.
