Julian Schnabel's first film since Before Night Falls is a gorgeous, canny, and sensual adaptation of a most unlikely story: the memoir of Parisian fashion magazine editor Jean-Dominique Bauby after he was paralyzed by a sudden stroke. The camera becomes the one eye Bauby can still control, and it roves—back to memories of a night under the glow of a light-up Virgin Mary in Lourdes and over the wind-ruffled curtains in his modest hospital room.
