THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY
Jean-Dominique Bauby (Mathieu Amalric) is a successful and charismatic editor-in-chief of French Elle, who believes he is living his life to its absolute fullest, when a sudden stroke leaves him in a life-altered state. While the physical challenges of Bauby's fate leave him with little hope for the future, he begins to discover how his life's passions, his rich memories and his newfound imagination can help him achieve a life without boundaries.
THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY is directed by Julian Schnabel, written by Ronald Harwood (THE PIANIST), photographed by cinematographer Janusz Kaminski (SHINDLER'S LIST, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN), and based on the memoir by Jean-Dominique Bauby.
