SAINT RALPH (Released to Theaters Canada 2004)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

Saint Ralph has much to say about faith and determination. It becomes a quality story because of that main theme. The script has been solidly built with good timing that moves the story along fluidly. There is a strong underlying theme that addresses a young man’s move into puberty that some audiences may object to while others will accept as a fact of life. But for those who object, be forewarned that this story runs two themes simultaneously. As well as a third theme of a young man’s tremendous desire to see his mother recover from a deadly illness. Adam Butcher performs outstandingly as Ralph Walker, the main character of this story. Watch for Campbell Scott acting the role of Father George Hibbert.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The movie has heart and gives a reality touch of the work required to succeed at an occupation, in this case winning a Marathon run. It is a quality watch despite the preoccupation with puberty-related subject matter.
