My Afternoons with Margueritte
Comedy drama about Germain, a semi-literate odd job man, who is treated as the village idiot in his small French town. When he meets an old lady in the park, Margueritte, they strike up a friendship as she teaches him the joys of French literature by reading aloud from her favourite books. When Germain discovers Margueritte's eyesight is failing he learns to read so that he may return the favour.
In French with English subtitles.
