A good story

Miles learns to face challenges and persevere in the face of intense adversity. The film emphasizes it's ok to be different even when others don't think so. Stay true and be good to yourself and others. REmember you have allies when times get tough. As a mom I cried when Miles got removed from the court while the scout was watching. The movie was tough and tender. Worth watching.
