The Other Side of the Mountain based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is an exceptionally moving film based upon the life of Jill Kinmount. It is the 1950's and Jill is a main contentor for the US skiing team. During trial runs she takes a chance that normally she would not have however she needed the few seconds as her main competition was doing very well. During her next run she hit ice, lost control and went over a cliff. She was paralyzed from the neck down. The film goes on to tell part of her life's story, this focus on the recovery and rehab and some major life events. It is a well done film that simply moves you as life throws more curves at her. As I watched her overcome everything and anything she could I fell in love with this film. I have given some as gifts and they tell me they feel the same as I do Whenever life seems hard I get this out and watch it and somehow life isn't so hard for me anymore and I am disabled. If you want a movie that will capture you forever and that will continue each time you watch it, I assure you.
