DVD Review: A Mile In His Shoes & GIVEAWAY!

My family recently had the privilege of reviewing the DVD A Mile In His Shoes, the inspiring story of a special boy with an amazing gift.  When Coach Arthur "Murph" Murphy sees Mickey Tussler pitching apples into a bucket for his pigs, he knows he's found someone with a special talent.  Convincing the young man's father to let him take the risk and convincing everyone on the team to accept him, however, prove to be challenges.  Mickey has Asperger Syndrome, a mild form of autism.  Though he is able to care for himself and communicate with others, sometimes his communication and his mental processes are slightly different from those of the typical baseball players.  Most of the team is ready to help him out, but some do not appreciate his presence.  Coach Murph, however, will not give up, as he battles some of his own inner demons in the process.

Dean Cain and Luke Schroder star in the GMC movie based on the book The Legend of Mickey Tussler.  From the director of Angels In the Outfield.

Our whole family enjoyed this movie, and it opened up some discussion about autism and Asperger Syndrome, since my kids have several friends who wear these labels.  It is appropriate for all ages, and I believe it is a "must-see" for anyone who has dealings with someone with Asperger Syndrome.
