Fractured Lives
30 December 2019 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

When "slice of life" movies are done right, they typically rank very high on my year-end lists. Driveways isn't necessarily about one particular thing or theme. But it certainly pulls on the heartstrings, asks you to think as an audience member, and ultimately sends you off with a beautiful last 15-20 minutes or so. It reminded me of films like St. Vincent and Sunshine Cleaning in the best ways, and I'm glad that being a Film Independent Member allowed me the opportunity to see this movie so that I can hopefully spread the word to other film fans who would also enjoy it.

8.8/10
