[Review]—Tyson's Run (2022)

Arriving in movie theaters on March 11th is the inspirational drama Tyson's Run (Rated PG; 102 minutes). Kim Bass wrote, produced, and directed the film. Planet 9 Productions produced the film with Collide Distribution distributing it. Four-time Grammy Award-winning gospel singer Yolanda Adams recorded If You Believe, an original song for the film.

Tyson's Run centers on an autistic fifteen-year-old named Tyson Hollerman (Major Dodson), who has been homeschooled by his mother, Eloise (Amy Smart), for his entire life. Tyson wants to learn more about algebra. He convinces his mother to enroll him as a student at Head High School, the very same school where his father, Bobby (Rory Cochrane), coaches football.

While helping his father clean up the football team, Tyson befriends champion marathon runner Aklilu (Barkhad Abdi), who owns a local shoe store. With Aklilu's guidance, Tyson is determined to be a runner and enter the town's upcoming marathon. He hopes he will win his father's approval by winning the race.

Final Thoughts

Tyson's Run is a blend of a coming-of-age tale and a sports drama that at times resembles an afterschool school special from the 1980s. (Remember those?) It's a family-friendly movie that touches on autism, school bullying, parental acceptance. The movie's main themes are faith, courage, and believing in yourself.

Overall, I enjoyed watching Tyson's Run. It's a well-directed movie with good performances from the cast.
