5 second plot: The real life story of Jean-Dominique Bauby, big time editor of Elle magazine, who has a massive stroke and is paralyzed from head to toe. He can only move his left eye. With the help of some amazing people, he learns to communicate and even writes a book.
5 second review: All the people in this movie are so close to the camera, I'm glad I didn't have to see this in a big theater, because I did not always feel comfortable. But that's the idea of course. It's an amazing story. Especially the fact that he found a way to keep his spirit up. And the fact that he made some new friends, who treated him like a king.
