Saint Ralph movie trailer - starring Jennifer Tilly, Campbell Scott, Gordon Pinsent, Shauna MacDonald, Adam Butcher, Michael Kanev. Directed by Michael McGowan. Theatrical Release Date: 8/5/2005
Interview with Director Michael McGowan of Still at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival along with footage from the film, as presented by Red Carpet Diary.
Set in the early 1950s, the film stars Adam Butcher as Ralph Walker, a teenager attending a Catholic private school. Ralph's father was killed in World War II before the beginning of the movie, and his mother is seen to have cancer. Ralph is naturally prone to mischief and often finds himself an outcast among his classmates. He tries to emulate the conduct of grown ups, and is caught smoking cigarettes and masturbating by the headmaster of his school. Already labeled a troublemaker, Ralph is forced to join the school's cross-country team to relieve him of his excess energy and 'evil tendencies'.

An inspiring story about the unlikely story of Ralph Walker, a ninth grader who outran everyone's expectations except his own in his bold quest of trying to win the 1954 Boston Marathon. Ralph is a fatherless 14-year-old with a seriously ill mother, who knows he's a time bomb waiting to explode into greatness, except that he has no idea where that greatness will manifest itself. An unfortunate incident of self-abuse in the community pool inadvertently sets him on this road when, as penance, Ralph is conscripted to the cross-country team. Desperate to believe a miracle will bring his mother out of a coma, Ralph becomes a convert to the church of running, and determines to win the Boston Marathon.
