After an accident in 2000 left her paralyzed from the waist down, former Ahwatukee business owner, Cristin Van Driel, was unable to act on her love of running. Her doctors at the time told her that she may never be able to run again due to the extent of her injuries.
While 2014 brought us a ton of tremendous blockbusters about superheroes, LEGOS, and talking raccoons, it was also a banner year for smaller movies about life itself. No matter what the budget, this year had no shortage of great films. Today we’ll be taking a look at my 10 personal favorites.
