One you may have overlooked

I had avoided the documentary Murderball, despite excellent reviews, because of the subject matter: quadriplegics who play wheelchair rugby. Well, avoid it no longer...it is really excellent, funny [these guys are quite profane] and extremely moving. If you're not in tears by the end, you're made of stone...though I wouldn't call it a sentimental movie at all. It's also the kind of story that can put in proper perspective the trivial things that might put me or you into a bad mood....these are people with real challenges who meet them head on. A compact 85 minutes, it's well worth a rental.
