A Walk in My Shoes is a family movie about lives intersecting in the blink of an eye to help one woman learn to listen to the feelings of others and not be so judgmental of people she hasn't taken time to know.
This film is very touching. The characters are so sincere and it truly captures the real-life struggles we face every day. The cinematography is really spectacular. I especially like it in the opening credits because it is very choppy and artistic. The music is great as well, it helps highlight the emotions in each scene and in each character. Plus the soundtrack is produced by Randy Jackson and features a lot of the up and coming new artists.
My favorite character is Molly (played by Yara Martinez), mostly because she is so mysterious and you really have to pay attention to understand what she is doing. My favorite scene is when Justin and his neighbor Jake are in his truck talking about Justin's father's death. This scene makes me tear up because it is sad, sweet, and a touching moment between the two of them.
This movie is for a family to sit and watch together because it has some really great messages that everyone will appreciate. I do advise this film for ages 12 and up because a younger audience won't understand the deeper meaning and drama of this film. It may also be confusing for younger kids because there is a lot going on in the blink of an eye.
Overall, I give Walk in My Shoes a thumbs up.

A touching film about the importance of showing compassion towards other people because we never know what other people are going through until we look into their lives. Tackles the age old question of "what if you switched places with someone else and lived their life?" There are so many things that can change one's perception of life once we take a look at others because everyone's motives for doing or not doing things are greatly impacted by the situations they face. This film reinforces not to be so quick to judge other people for their actions.
High school teacher Trish Fahey can't understand her student Justin Kremer's lack of effort in class, so she has him suspended from the basketball team, blaming bad parenting. This perspective dramatically changes when Trish has a car accident and wakes to find herself living the life of Cindy Kremer, the woman she has personally judged and criticized. She discovers that there is often more to the story and learns a powerful lesson that affects everyone in her life.
