When Driss, an ex-con from the projects, is hired to take care of an eccentric French aristocrat, Philippe, his newfound job quickly becomes an unpredictable adventure. Speeding a Maserati through Paris, seducing women, and paragliding over the Alps are just the beginning, as Driss turns the often humorous world of upper-class Parisian society upside-down. As this unlikely duo overcomes adversity in this true story, they also shatter their preconceptions of love, life, and each other. Based on the #1 International best-selling book, You Changed My Life.

Friday, November 15, 2013
Director: Iciar Bollain
Idealistic filmmaker Sebastian and his cynical producer Costa arrive in Bolivia to make a revisionist film about Christopher Columbus' conquest of the Americas. But as filming commences, the local citizens begin to riot in protest against a multi-national corporation that is taking control of their water supply. With the film shoot in jeopardy, both men find their convictions shaken. Inspired by the real-life Water Wars in Bolivia in the year 2000, this film explores the lasting effects of Spanish imperialism, still resonating some 500 years later in the continued struggle of indigenous people against oppression and exploitation.
