Saint Ralph - 8/10
This is a low budget Canadian film.
I don't want to give anything away, but the story centers around a 14-year-old boy attending Catholic school in the 1950s. His father was killed during WWII and during the course of the movie his mother falls into a deep coma. He's told it will take a miracle for her to recover. Later on he gets it in his head that winning the Boston Marathon would qualify as said miracle.
Funny and inspiration with a well paced storyline. The acting is solid. It's available to watch instantly on Netflix -- which is how I saw it.

Thanks I was interested in that.
It looked to me like a 50/50 toss up to be what it was, versus a movie that ends up being really awesome. Unfortunately it was the former, by far. I didn't want to wait for Shutter Island this weekend, and figured I'd roll the dice. Ya win some, ya lose some.
