I was recently able to watch a screener video of Tyson’s Run. It’s a new movie about persistence and faith. Keep reading for my Tyson’s Run Movie Review and a giveaway!
Tyson’s Run – Movie Review
Tyson’s Run tells the story of 15 year old Tyson, who has autism. He has been homeschooled his whole life by his mother. Now, he has started to attend public school where his father coaches football. Because he wanted to learn algebra. lol He said he would go, learn algebra, and come back to teach it to mom, since she doesn’t know how to do it. lol
While helping his father at football practice, he meets champion marathon runner Aklilu, who is using the track. His life is changed forever.
Tyson becomes determined to run his first marathon, Never letting his autism hold him back. By running, Tyson hopes to win his father’s approval. He runs every chance he gets. Including leaving the house at all hours to go running. As you can imagine, that doesn’t go over well with his parents.
With the help of an unlikely friend and his parents, Tyson learns that with faith in yourself and the courage to take the first step, anything is possible.
Check out the trailer!
Tyson’s father seems rather cold towards him. So it’s understandable that Tyson would like to win his approval.
Tyson has a bit of a rough start at public school, but soon makes friends. Friends that help him, and cheer him on while he is running his first marathon.
After a life threatening accident while running, his father realizes how important it is to Tyson to become a marathon runner. Then he does everything he can to help Tyson get to the marathon.
What a shock to everyone when he won his first marathon! Especially the naysayers!
Tyson’s run is an awesome family movie! There is a scene where some kids pull Tyson’s chair out from under him when he is sitting down. Causing him to fall, and his lunch tray to turn over on him. But the scene ends with a girl coming over, telling the boys to stop, and helping Tyson up. She then invites him to sit at her table, and they become good friends. So it’s a great scene to have a conversation with our kids about how to treat, and help, others.
While not based on a true story, it has the feel that it could be. I loved Tyson’s Run, and plan on buying it when it becomes available in stores.
Tyson’s Run opens in theaters on March 11! Go buy your tickets now!
