The next NoVES Movie Series Discussion event will be held this Saturday. This is a movie showing via Zoom followed by a discussion.  It will start by broadcasting the movie so that we may watch it together. The movie itself is 1 hour 52 minutes.

This movie is available on NETFLIX.  If you have already seen the movie, you may join the Zoom Meeting at around 9:00 PM to participate in the discussion.

EVENT DETAILS:  The Intouchables (2011) R

I needed to recharge my batteries so this is a feel-good movie.  It is in French, so I hope that the subtitles will not be too difficult.  It has one of the highest IMDB ratings I have ever seen 8.5/10.  Since this 2011 movie was a hit, there was an American remake, The Upside, in 2017, which only got an IMDB rating of 6.9/10.  Remakes often do not live up to the original.  I decided to roll with the original French movie. – Randy

IMDB includes this summary of the movie:

The Intouchables: In Paris, the aristocratic and intellectual Philippe is a quadriplegic millionaire who is interviewing candidates for the position of his carer, with his red-haired secretary Magalie. Out of the blue, Driss cuts the line of candidates and brings a document from the Social Security and asks Phillipe to sign it to prove that he is seeking a job position so he can receive his unemployment benefit. Philippe challenges Driss, offering him a trial period of one month to gain experience helping him. Then Driss can decide whether he would like to stay with him or not. Driss accepts the challenge and moves to the mansion, changing the boring life of Phillipe and his employees. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Zoom link for the movie showing is included below.

I look forward to showing this movie and the discussion.
