In the French film The Intouchables, a paralyzed millionaire hires a young ex-con off the street to take care of him. As they get to know one another, an unlikely bond forms between two people who otherwise would have nothing in common. Think Scent of a Woman, swapping blindness for a wheel chair. The film is currently pulling in a 76 percent fresh rating from rottentomatoes.com – a pretty good score.
