A Mile In His Shoes Is a movie based on the story of Mickey Tussler, a boy with Asperger's who was discovered by a coach who saw him pitching apples to the pigs, and decided to give him a chance at playing for the River Rats.
I enjoyed seeing Mickey gain confidence in his pitching skills, as well as finding friendship in his team mates.
I watched this movie with an 18 year old young lady and 21 year old young man, and they both said they thought the movie was "Amazing!" and "Inspiring!"
The father tried sheltering Mickey from getting hurt by the world, but it was just as bad for him to not have a life outside of what the father demanded. The coach, played by Dean Cain, saw potential in not only Mickey's pitching, but also as someone who needed to grow in life. The coach's own loss in life made him distant in life, but Mickey's faith helped him face it and come to terms with it.
I recommend this as a film to those who enjoy a good family movie; there is a fight scene and some yelling, so it's not for little children.
