Blending the tragic with the triumphant, The Diving Bell and The Butterfly depicts the life of renowned magazine editor Jean-Dominique Bauby, who, after suffering a stroke that paralyzed his entire body except his left eye, used a blinking code to write his own memoir in 1997. Adapted to film by director Julian Schnabel in 2007, the remarkable story has touched critics and audiences alike with its breathtaking visuals and dynamic performances, and received countless accolades, including four Academy Awards nominations.
