The Movie Writer:
Jean-Do (Mathieu Amalric) was once the editor of fashion bible
, but after a sudden stroke he finds himself locked in his own body, only able to move his left eyelid.
Director Julian Schnabel tells Jean-Do's story with tact and authenticity, as we follow our protagonist as he attempts to write his first book, dictating using only his eye.
: When Jean-Do connects with his ninety-two-year-old father - trapped in his own apartment thanks to his frail, aging body, the duo start to find they have imprisonment in common.
