Mickey Tussler, an autistic pitcher, joins a minor-league baseball team and has a profound effect on the team and manager Arthur “Murph” Murphy over the course of a season.
Today I have the pleasure to share my review of another great movie with you guys. The movie which I’m reviewing today is called A Mile In His Shoes and it’s from the same director as Angels in the Outfield. This movie follows autistic pitcher Micky Tussler (Luke Schroder) and his lasting effect on his team, the Cleveland River Rats, and their manager, Arthur “Murph” Murphy (Dean Cain).
For those of you who have seen the movie Radio before, this film is fairly similar. Both movies follow a mentally-challenged teenager, who have some issues with the team they help, or play on this movie. If you’ve seen Radio before, I’m sure you’ll love this movie as well. And if you haven’t seen it, I recommend you watch both of these great films.
A Mile In His Shoes was a great movie, very enjoyable overall. The message of the movie – forgiveness, perseverance, and “walking a mile in his shoes” – is a great one, one that the whole family can learn from. This movie is an all-around wholesome and memorable Christian film.
The acting in the movie is realistic, although I did feel as if some of Micky’s father’s scenes seemed to be a bit strained and not as realistic as they could have been. In the long run though the choice of actors and actresses in this movie was superb, they fit their characters well, and they all pulled together to make this a great movie.
If you’re looking for an uplifting and memorable movie to watch with the family, this is a great film to watch. I enjoyed watching the movie myself, and the family certainly enjoyed watching it as well. I would give this film four stars out of a possible five.
