Do you find it challenging to find movies to watch with your entire family? Movies that aren't filled with inappropriate language and themes? If so, make plans with your family to watch the newest movie, "Field of Vision", from Family Movie Night, airing this Saturday, June 11th at 8/7c on NBC! Tackling issues like bullying and choosing what is right, this movie is a great way to start a conversation with your kids.
I had the opportunity to preview "Field of Vision", presented by Walmart and P&G. It was an enjoyable, family film that I would feel comfortable watching with my children. The emphasis on choosing right even when it's tough was refreshing in a time when most kid/family movies deal more with "potty humor" than life lessons.
Sometimes being a leader is tougher than winning
Through mysterious footage captured on an old malfunctioning video camera, Sinclair High School's star quarterback, Tyler McFarland, learns that some of his teammates have been bullying Cory Walker, a troubled new transfer student. Aware that sharing this information with the coach might get his friends kicked off the team and ultimately cost the school the state championship, Tyler must choose what's more important: winning or doing what's right.
As these events unfold, the camera also reveals more surprising footage to Tyler's kid sister Lucy. She learns that Cory has a secret past, unknown even to him. Now Lucy must convince her mom (Faith Ford, Murphy Brown) and family that the camera's revealing insight is not a product of her imagination as she enlists their help to find the answers Cory so desperately needs. It's a compelling and intriguing story that shows both the challenges and rewards of doing the right thing even when it's tough to do.
