The IntouchablesWe have free passes to a May 29 screening of THE INTOUCHABLES, one of the hits of the 2012 Dallas International Film Festival.

Directed by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, and starring François Cluzet, Omar Sy, Anne Le Ny, INTOUCHABLES is a comedic tale of two drastically different men that meet through a job interview.

Philippe, a wealthy aristocratic quadriplegic, is on the hunt for a new caretaker. Driss, a Senegalese immigrant from the projects, shows up for the interview—but only to obtain a signature to keep his unemployment benefits rolling in. But to the astonishment of everyone on his staff, Philippe gives the overconfident, charismatic, and under-qualified Driss the position. While learning unfiltered details of each other’s lives, Philippe and Driss gain a renewed sense of life and friendship, and discover that sometimes, one just needs a high-speed police chase in a Maserati to escape the routine of everyday life.

Loosely based on a real story and one of France’s highest-grossing films to date, INTOUCHABLES is filled with life lessons—the most important of which is that it’s OK to laugh at yourself—and superb acting; Sy went on to receive a César Award (France’s equivalent of an Oscar) for best actor for his role in the film, making him the first black man to receive the award. — MEGHAN CARLSON
