LE SCAPHANDRE ET LE PAPILLON

Dir. Julian Schnabel (France: 2007), 112 mins.

Using his left eye to blink out his memoir, Jean-Dominique Bauby, an Elle France editor, who suffered a stroke at age 43 that paralyzed his entire body, except his left eye, eloquently described the aspects of his interior world. From the psychological torment of being trapped inside his body to his imagined stories from lands he'd only visited in his mind, Baudy shares his story.
