– The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
Jean-Dominique Bauby (Mathieu Almaric) was felled at the age of 43 by a massive stroke that left his body almost completely paralyzed but his mind intact—what doctors call “locked in syndrome.” In a heartbeat, he went from the well-known editor of a top magazine to a prisoner in his own ruined body, able only to blink his left eye. Remarkably, Bauby was able to use that eye to dictate The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, a memoir to his dedicated speech therapist (Marie-Josee Croze)—one letter at time.
