A 15-year-old autistic boy, in public school for the first time, tries to win his father’s approval by running his first marathon. To achieve his goal, he’ll be trained by a champion marathon runner. The Movie is available now for streaming.
The film’s lead role stars an actor, Major Dodson, who himself is on the autism spectrum.
“Tyson’s a great guy. He’s a person with goals and aspirations. He just operates in a different manner,” Dodson said in a featurette for the film. “He cares about his friends, he cares about his family. He wants to impress his father. He’s just a normal kid, for the most part, living with a normal family trying to do something big.”
Just like the film’s main character, Dodson said he, too, experienced growth in his social skills as he aged.
