Mickey, a young man diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome (a form of autism), is discovered by a minor league baseball coach and offered a spot on the team. His parents reluctantly agree and Mickey is thrust into a world of new, and sometimes frightening, experiences.
Jealous teammate Lefty causes trouble for Mickey, but the boy's spirit is not broken. Despite the obstacles, Mickey's determination becomes an inspiration for his whole team, and even his gruff and skeptical father.
The PG rating
concerned me, but I did not find anything alarming. **SPOILER:** Mickey is invited to a party by a fellow teammate whose jealousy has given root to evil intentions towards the newest member of the team. The scenes suggest that drinking may be going on, but no closeups or offers to Mickey are given. When Mickey is taken away from the party and overwhelmed by 'bad guys,' the beating isn't shown - you just assume that's what happens - as the movie quickly progresses to the next scene.**
Based on a true story, A Mile in His Shoes is a family-friendly movie that teaches both acceptance and perseverance. Our whole family enjoyed watching Mickey's story.
