The Reeve Foundation is proud to report The Intouchables has just received a nomination for the 2013 Golden Globes for Best Foreign Language Film. The Intouchables is a French film based on a true story of a man living with quadriplegia who was injured in a paragliding accident and his caregiver. The story goes in depth to show life with paralysis, the relationship between the two men, and many similarities and differences.
This year, The Intouchables was also honored at 2012's A Magical Evening gala on November 28th with the Dana Reeve HOPE award.

Reeve Foundation President & CEO highlights the film's story in The Huffington Post.
I'm not going to give anything away, but when you see The Intouchables, you'll watch an incredibly uplifting story -- a comedy -- about friendship, trust, and human possibility. Philippe, a Parisian millionaire living with high-level paralysis due to a spinal cord injury, is captivated by Driss, an unsophisticated, street-smart ex-con from Senegal who applies for a job as Philippe's caretaker -- with no qualifications. Rather than hiring someone more qualified for that complex position, Philippe hires Driss. And they're a terrible match... that somehow works.

Much congratulations to all our friends who made The Intouchables such a success!
