"The Diving Bell and the Butterfly"
I'd read the book, and saw the film the other day.
Just to explain, the book has a liturgical feel (in its cadences), which I imagine is due to the fact that the text was thought out in advance and communicated by means of the author's left eyelid indicating yes or no to each letter.
It has a wider interest than just the coping with paralysis thing.
It occurred to me, as I was watching it, that there was a lot in it about what it means to be human.
