Intouchables - relationships, caregiving and disability

In the French film Intouchables, a rich quadriplegic hires a young man from the projects to be his live in caregiver. Some critics love it, others say it plays on stereotypes. I think it's great to see issues involving relationships between disabled folk and caregivers out there. Is it a realistic portrayal? Probably not. Just the fact that he can afford a live in caregiver is a dead give away - as if most people can do that! Look forward to seeing it.
