Peter Wilderotter, the Reeve Foundation's President and CEO, has a piece on Huffington Post about the new film The Intouchables.
Maybe you've heard the buzz about The Weinstein Company's The Intouchables, the French film that more than a third of that country has seen. Don't miss it.
Based on a true story, this is a touchingly comedic and unapologetic movie about someone living with high-level paralysis. My many friends and colleagues who live with paralysis declare it honest and accurate. More importantly, this is a story of human connection. About discovering the commonality among all of us, no matter how distant that connection might initially seem.
We were so moved by the story that we have decided to honor the film, which is a first for us, at our gala later this year. The great Meryl Streep, always a champion for our cause, introduced Harvey Weinstein to our organization.
