The Diving Bell & The Butterfly has been on my to-watch list for forever. Thanks to this awful fricking flu I have loads of time on my hands so I finally took it in.
It's the true story of the editor of Elle who suffers a stroke causing him to be completely paralyzed. He can only communicate by blinking one eye. Sounds not-so-uplifting, aye?
And while it isn't a happy go lucky kind of film, it is hopeful and stunningly well filmed. I give it a 6.
