French (English subtitles)
A powerful and uplifting film based on a true story. Dominique Bauby, a French writer and magazine editor, suffers a stroke at the age of 43, becoming almost totally paralysed as a result. The only part of his body that he can still move is a single eyelid, which he determinedly uses as his sole form of communication - by blinking at specific cue cards to form messages. Using this slow and arduous method, Bauby begins to dictate a book about his experience with locked-in syndrome - and as he does, he finds his powers of imagination and description even stronger now than they were before.
The moving and finely-crafted tale of the Cuban Poet and novelist Reinaldo Arenas who suffered severe persecution because of his sexuality.
