A totally subjective list of movies that I recommend:

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly: Moving account of a man with ‘locked in syndrome’. Hit with a stroke in his 40s, this Elle magazine editor was unable to move anything but his left eye. The movie is based on the book that he ‘dictated’ painstakingly, one letter at a time, by blinking to a secretary to signal each letter.

more to come…
