Julian Schnabel's Golden Globe Win

Director Julian Schnabel has a lot to celebrate with two Golden Globe wins for “Best Director” and “Best Foreign Language Film” for his latest flick “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” (Scaphandre et le papillon, Le).

Schnabel dedicated the movie to his father, which is an adaptation of a French memoir (by Jean-Dominique Bauby). The movie describes what life is like after suffering a massive stroke that left Bauby with a condition called Locked-In syndrome.

Schnabel’s good friend Johnny Depp was supposed to take on the role as Bauby but had to turn it down due to his commitment to Pirates. Instead French actor Mathieu Amalric took on the role and did a phenomenal job. The movie is getting great reviews and obviously a lot of credit. To get a sneak peak check out the trailer below.
