Why It's Wonderful
"This is a French film that came out recently—a love story between two men who learn so much from each other. After an accident leaves him a quadriplegic, a wealthy man hires a younger guy from the projects to take care of him, and they reawaken each other, sharing their unique takes on the world. It's inspiring without being saccharine. And it's really funny. I left the theater so happy."
"Why do you think people are interested in art?... Because it's the only thing one leaves behind."
