Storyline

Myron Yoder's Indiana family always was proud of eldest son Seth, a sports prodigy, but most attention goes to younger Justin, whose spina bifida condition means a wheelchair and constant, frantic care. During make-up chores for endangering grumpy neighbor Vic Sauder's sports car, Justin discovers a sport he finally hopes to excel in, soap box cart racing, and gets highly experienced Vic and pa to help and coach him. That proves promising and dangerous, but also puts unbearable stress on the family cohesion as Seth now feels cruelly shoved aside. Written by KGF Vissers

Great movie on many levels
18 February 2008 | by card54See all my reviews

Miracle in Lane 2 works on several levels. First and most noticeable, it is a wonderful movie about overcoming obstacles, being persistent, working with mentors, etc., etc. Everything we come to expect from this genre.

It is also a good disability awareness movie, suitable for a wide audience. The movie demonstrates the way 2 groups of people typically respond to persons with disabilities; those who "get it" and those who don't.

"Miracle" reflects, in Disney's soft-edged style, some of the challenges faced by children with physical disabilities, their parents, their siblings and the larger public. It deals with some touchy subjects with sensitivity AND a dose of reality.

Based on fact? Yes. Factually correct? Well, the writers took a lot of license with the details of how the All American Soap Box Derby works. That's secondary to the story, however. Suffice it to say one won't learn much about the way AASBD operates from this flick, other than kids building and competing in gravity-powered racers. You will learn more about the issues mentioned above.

That said, there was enough factual correctness that when my stepson, a wheelchair user most of his life, was motivated by this film to compete himself, we were able to make contact with the gentleman who (still?) manufactures the hand brake used by Justin. Last I heard, it remains the only "non-standard" component permitted on any standard AASBD racer.

BTW, Not only did my stepson compete locally, he became a Vermont State Champion and competed in the 2002 World Championships in Akron. While we were there, he spent some time with the real Justin.
