Movie Info

According to the Lifetime channel publicity, the made for cable Miracle Run was "inspired by the true story of the winner in all of us." The life of single mother Corinne Morgan (Mary-Louise Parker) is forever changed when she learns that both of her twin sons are autistic. The medical experts advice Corinne either to have the boys institutionalized or farm them out for adoption: The educational establishment writes off both kids as "unteachable" virtually before they ever set foot in a school. But Corinne is determined to the point of bullying that the twins will have as a normal a life as possible--and with the help of sympathetic handyman Douglas Thomas (Aidan Quinn), her hopes are fulfilled beyond her wildest dreams. Despite its optimistic outlook, the film stresses the fact that the lives of young Steven and Phillip Morgan will forever remain a steep and often treacherous uphill climb. Miracle Run debuted August 9, 2004.

All of this is pretty standard basic-cable fare, but Zac's acting really does make it a little more interesting than you might assume such a movie would be.

I wonder if this was a made-for-TV movie? It's a sappy, sentimental film about a strong mother who refuses to give up on her autistic sons. I can't fault the film's messages about not treating the kids any differently and refusing to acknowledge autism as a disability. However, I would have liked to see the mother's character struggle a bit more. She never seemed to have a moment of doubt, or throw her hands up and not know what to do.
