‘Season of Miracles’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
Based on the award-winning novel by Rusty Whitener, Season of Miracles follows the Robins, an underdog Little League team through their 1974 season with newcomer and autistic baseball savant, Rafer (Grayson Russell, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Talladega Nights).
Team leader Zack (Andrew Wilson Williams) takes Rafer under his wing despite taunting from their rivals, the Hawks. Their Coach (John Schneider, The Dukes of Hazzard, October Baby), manager Rebecca (Sydney Morgan Layne), and the rest of the Robins encourage Rafer as the team rises towards an unlikely championship season, that is less about winning and losing and more about living and dying.
Season of Miracles is a life-inspiring story about sportsmanship, friendship, and courage in the face of adversity.
Here are a few things I liked about this film:
- The concept that everyone touches everyone. It reminds me of Romans 14:7 – For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. What a fabulous world this would be if we all lived by that motto. The kingdom of Heaven motto.
- What is a true winner? What is most important in life? Sports or People? A good question for everyone to ask themselves.
- Focusing on peoples abilities, rather than their disabilities. Watch Miracle in the Making for more about the film.
- Watching Grayson play Rafer, who has Autism, fabulous job.
- Rebecca’s keen insight into baseball. I wish I had that gift in life…to recognize right away people in need, the right words to say, just to be more observant, more in tune to God’s will at a moments notice.
