A Mile in His Shoes ~ DVD Review & Giveaway

I am very excited to start off the New Year with a DVD review and giveaway of Mile in His Shoes!



About Mile in His Shoes:

From the director of "Angels In the Outfield" comes an inspiring story about a special boy with an amazing gift, and the coach who believed. Dean Cain and Luke Schroder star in the gmc movie based on the book "The Legend of Mickey Tussler".

  My Review:
 This movie which stars Dean Cain and premiered on gmc in September is about a young man diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome (a form of autism) and how he succeeds in life. The story of Mickey is inspiring, heartwarming and encouraging.  I am impressed with the producers and writers for using the subject of a young man with Asperger's syndrome in a challenging situation (baseball).  The movie was somewhat predictable, but I still found myself excited to follow along on the adventure. My family and I enjoyed this movie. I really think you will enjoy this family-friendly movie as well!
