I watched "A Mile in His Shoes" after my cousin let me know that it was available on Netflix.
It was on my watching list of movies that I would like to see, so I decided I would go ahead and check it out.
My Synopsis: The movie is essentially about a young man with Asberger syndrome, who has a remarkable pitching arm.
He is recruited by an out of state baseball team's coach who recognizes his amazing abilities.
My Opinion on the movie:
High points of the movie
They really did do a great job with this movie!
Having Autism myself the actor that played Mickey and the movie itself did a great job at showing different aspects about Asberger Syndrome.
The sensory overload that Mickey experienced during his first time at the ball
park,new people and unfamiliar surroundings was especially good, and I could definitely relate.
The movie also had a very good ending, and also showed good sportsmanship, and also showed poor sportsmanship in the form of Mickey's antagonist, and his cohorts.
Low points of the movie
In a heated argument between coaches there is a word substitution
instead of the actual word that a coach may typically use, other than that no poor language, and filled with uplifting positive talk.
One of the main characters is somewhat hurt, and even though the scene doesn't show much violence, the aftermath in the form of Bruising and a few scrapes does make some screen time, other than that not much on violence.
My final rating for this movie would be a 5/5
This would be a good watch with most family, even if they aren't particular interested in sports.
