Surname 1 Name: Instructor: Course: Date: Movie Review: The Intouchables The Intouchables film became the second most prosperous French movie, and it provided the alternative to the narrative concerning race, wealth and immigration. However, there are several cultural stereotypes portrayed in this film, including the offensive racial and class stereotypes. The black character known as Driss is portrayed as stereotypical; in the movie, he applies and gets the job as a caretaker of a wealthy white man, Phillippe, who is disabled. The work that Driss does for his master seems like a new version of a black domestic worker serving his white master and does some duties that other whites even when given the opportunity cannot do such work. These racial stereotypes address the black people as low-class individuals who deserve to do all the servant roles (Fox, Marie & Radner, 239). However, they can be challenged and through educating them about individual differences and the fact that people have different capabilities such that not all blacks deserve low-class work.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
