The IntouchablesThe top-grossing foreign film in North America in 2012, The Intouchables is sure to keep you laughing and crying.

In the French movie, Omar Sy (Micmacs) stars as Driss, an ex-con from the projects who’s hired to take care of eccentric French aristocrat Philippe (Francois Cluzet, Little White Lies). The job turns out not what he expected, however, entailing speeding a Maserati through Paris, seducing women and paragliding over the Alps as Driss turns the Parisian upper-class society upside-down and shatters preconceptions of love and life.

The Intouchables is based on the internationally best-selling book You Changed My Life, which in turn is based on a true story of two men overcoming adversity.

Rated R, the film grossed more than $420 million worldwide and was nominated for nine Cesar Awards, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor twice, for both Sy and Cluzet. Sy won the trophy. The Intouchables also was nominated for a Golden Globe.

On DVD and Blu-ray, the movie is in French with English subtitles and comes with five deleted scenes and download and instant streaming via UltraViolet.
