Our theme from Soul Matters for November is Change. Pema Chodrons says “Let difficulty transform you. And it will. In my experience, we just need help learning how not to run away.”
The Intouchables is a true story of a millionaire and his convict caretaker which revolves around a friendship of disrespect and humor. Omar Sy (Driss) is effervescent and humorous as Driss, inept to the social surroundings of his employer, and he is full of heart and heartbreak. Of course there isn’t anything new about this film, or the story it tells, but it’s heartwarming to see a quadriplegic overcome the baser anxieties of his handicap, and for a disenfranchised ex-con find happiness and loyalty in his friendship. Keith Garlington writes “The Intouchables was a fantastic experience from its brilliant opening to its satisfying final scene. It’s an example of smart and capable filmmaking that can make you laugh as well as tug at your heartstrings.”
Come join us on Saturday November 5, at 4 pm in the Fellowship.
