{Review & Giveaway} A Mile in His Shoes

Any woman my age will remember Ricky Schroder. I'll wait while you all sigh. Ahhhh.... Of course, now I'm feeling very old as I just watched his 18-year-old son act in one of his first movies - A Mile in His Shoes. And by-the-way, his son looks very much like his father!

Luke Schroder plays Mickey, an autistic boy, and Dean Cain (okay, another sigh!) plays Murph the manager of a minor league baseball team. Micky has an amazing pitching arm and the movie follows him as he leaves his family's farm and his very protective father to live life on his own. Murph and some of his teammates accept him and work trying to help him adjust to his new found status as the star pitcher on the baseball team. However, this also causes some issues with the current pitcher who finds himself ousted. 

One very snowy day last week I popped this in for a fun movie afternoon with the boys. We all loved it. I thought it well done. Luke Schroder did an excellent job portraying Mickey. It was also family friendly. It was an excellent portrayal of how we should treat others - not based on the outside but on the heart.

  1. Looks like a great movie, just the kids we like here! I wonder if the Library has it, hmmm. Favorite movie... Right now I'd have to say The Blind Side.

  2. I'd love to win! I meant to sign up for this through Propeller and forgot to respond to the email. Doh! Of course, autism is close to home here.

    Hard to choose a favorite movie, but just about anything with Cary Grant is on my favorite list.


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
