An inspiring story about the unlikely story of Ralph Walker, a ninth grader who outran everyone's expectations except his own in his bold quest of trying to win the 1954 Boston Marathon. Ralph is a fatherless 14-year-old with a seriously ill mother, who knows he's a time bomb waiting to explode into greatness, except that he has no idea where that greatness will manifest itself. An unfortunate incident of self-abuse in the community pool inadvertently sets him on this road when, as penance, Ralph is conscripted to the cross-country team. Desperate to believe a miracle will bring his mother out of a coma, Ralph becomes a convert to the church of running, and determines to win the Boston Marathon.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This crude, inspirational tear-jerker is as sweet as a bowl of instant oatmeal smothered in molasses.
Fresh: It's worth seeking out this bittersweet comedy with its emotionally resonant story and stellar performances.
Fresh: An amiable sentimental fantasy, joining running, religion and a boy with a whole lot of problems into an earnest production that entertains even as it milks some of its situations for all they're worth.
Fresh: A tart and tender comedy that pulls off a little miracle of its own by being genuinely heartwarming without leaving any cloyingly sticky emotional residue.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME!! I suggest this to ANYBODY. I LOVE ADAM BUTCHER!!
This is one of my favorite movies of all time. If you are a runner, it's especially a must-see! Funny, inspirational, and heart-warming all at the same time! You'll want to run a marathon!
I first heard of this movie on amazon, where they recommended it to me because I had purchased "Son Of Rambow" (Which is a fantastic Movie) and it looked good enough. So I bought it on iTunes. I have to say, wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Once again, I wish there was a Renting Option.
