Movie Review and Giveaway- A Mile in His Shoes

Woo Hoo! My first ever blog giveaway! And boy, what a treat you are in for!

A Mile in His Shoes is an inspiring movie from gmc based on the book "The Legend of Mickey Tussler". It is brought to you by the director of "Angels in the Outfield" and is the story of an 18 year old boy Mickey with Aspergers Syndrome who has spent his whole life on his family's farm where he has had plenty of time to hone his apple throwing skills. But Mickey's life is about to change when minor league baseball manager Arthur Murphy's map reading mishap lands him in a ditch in front of the Tussler family farm. While "Murph" borrows the phone, he spies Mickey hurling apples with some serious "heat" and suddenly Mickey's future is looking very promising. An overbearing father, jealous teammate, autism related quirks, and an old rival add enough drama to this "feel good" movie to make it believable (my kids were convinced it must be based on a true story), and faith is a real, but definitely subtle, component. All in all, A Mile in His Shoes is a good, clean family movie that everyone will enjoy. And since everyone who knows me knows sports aren't really my thing, you know the movie must be good if I'm recommending it even though the story revolves around baseball! And if you watch it, I know you'll find yourself root, root, rooting for the home team too.

 A Mile in His Shoes stars Dean Cain and Luke Schroder (son of Rick Schroder) and is available on DVD HERE. You can read a review by the Dove Foundation HERE. Or check out the Youtube click below:
