An washed up ex baseball player meets a young man with down syndrome and fines meaning to his life.
14 September 2015 | by thesergioarguetaSee all my reviews

Let me just start out by saying that I think this movie is pretty good, I was expecting more since, really, there aren't too many movies that revolve around people with down syndrome, but this was quite nice. I like the story, its nice and harmless. I do wish that they'd put more emphasis on Produce (the young man with down syndrome) and how he lives on a regular basis, during most of the movie he is at work, but its not really about produce as much as it is about the ex-pro baseball player. There are some scenes that feel a little rushed emotionally but the intention is there. But, lets not forget that this is a Christian movie, but how does it fare Christian-wise? Well, it just touches on the subject and it doesn't really get all that preachy so I think that's a plus. All in all its a pretty good film with a nice message and a good ending, (you'll see what I mean). I think its worth a check out for anybody who is interested, its only a 15$ movie and well worth it. 7/10.
