"Saint Ralph" is a beautiful, bittersweet comedy of an awkward, ninth grade Catholic school boy who sets out to make a miracle happen. Believing a miracle can save his mother's life and having been told his winning the Boston Marathon would be "a miracle," Ralph begins training to win the famed race. Only after seeing his resolve and temerity, a conflicted Father Hibbert (Campbell Scott) trains the boy through his triumphant win at a local race and prepares him for the ultimate challenge.
A former Detroit Marathon winner ('85), writer/director Michael McGowan has crafted a heart-warming story with stellar performances from Campbell Scott and newcomer Adam Butcher as "Ralph". The film premiered at the 2004 Toronto International Film Festival.
