He decides to race in soapbox derbies. And he gets good with the help of his supportive family and neighbor. Along the way, he discovers more about his inner self and begins to appreciate who he is, wheelchair or no wheelchair.
But what made me truly appreciate this movie was the way the filmmakers accentuated the reality. They not only carefully hit upon Justin's trials as a paralyzed kid, but also upon his brother's (Seth) own issues with Justin.
My brother has a disability as well, somewhat different from Justin's problems, but their portrayal of Seth was what made the movie more authentic and helped me to personally relate to the characters.
Making an audience relate to the characters is what makes a movie work. This movie worked. Kudos to Disney for creating this wonderful film.
One thing I did have a problem with: their portrayal of God and Heaven. While it is true that God does not make mistakes, and I have seen many times when He has used my disability for good, I will NOT have these handicaps in Heaven. It is misleading and very disappointing that Disney took this stance.
this same Father had his daughter racing in the Soap Box Derby. The neighbor had compassion for Justin and agreed to help him learn to race
in the soap box derby competitions. Then Justin's family became involved. The young actor, Frankie Muniz was the superb selection for the role of Justin Yoder and had the precocious talent to re-enact how Justin learned perseverance can overcome barriers. Frankie Muniz is gifted and worthy of a five-star rating! This is an ideal family movie and I have discreetly used it for families who have exceptional challenges. Disney has a super track record for movies with moral meanings anyone can learn from.
