Contest: The Intouchables

posted by Nell Minow

One of the most popular movies of 2012 is out on DVD this week and I have one copy to give away.  The Intouchables is a French film (with subtitles) based on the true story of a friendship between a wealthy man who has been completely paralyzed and the brash, outspoken man who becomes his aide.  It is a heartwarming and inspiring story (with some mature material and strong language) and co-star Omar Sy won the French equivalent of the Oscar.  If you’d like to win a DVD, send me an email at with “Intouchables” in the subject line and tell me something you like about France.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only.)  I’ll pick a winner at random on March 10.  Bonne chance!
