18. 'The Elegance Of The Hedgehog'
Renée Michel is a concierge at a Parisian apartment building who purposefully conceals her intelligence. She gets to watch the lavish lives of the tenants living in her apartment building, getting a glimpse into each of their stories, but one tennant especially stands out to her: Paloma, a 12-year-old genius who has decided to end her life on her 13th birthday. 

The two embark on an unlikely friendship, where both are concealing traits from a world they think won't appreciate or accept them.
