Field of Vision

You may or may not know about the movie Field of Vision that premiers on NBC Saturday, June 11 at 8:00 pm EST.  I didn't know anything about it ... probably because I really don't watch much television.  :)  But I was approached to watch it and do a review ... not the easiest thing to do now that school is out and the kids are home 24/7.  But while it was raining this afternoon, I managed to squeeze in a little movie time.

Anyway, enough about me ... what about the movie?!

Walmart and P&G present Field of Vision as part of their Family Movie Night line up.  I love the idea of Family Movie Night.  Knowing that the kids and I can watch a wholesome movie without worrying about inappropriate language or questionable scenes is a wonderful thing.  Plus throw in a good lesson or two and you've got the makings of a great movie.  

This movie has all that!  Plus it has some great music! 

Here's some info about the movie from the website ...

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.

I look forward to watching this movie tomorrow night with the kids.  It will provide a great opportunity for discussion about bullying and doing the right thing.  Two great lessons for kids of all ages.  And although the outcome is somewhat predictable, you may still need to keep the tissues close at hand.  Or perhaps I'm just emotional today.  Whatever.  :)

Want to find out more about the movie?   You can head over to the movie's website or Moms 4 Family TV.  Or you can check out the review by The Dove Foundation, where you will see that Dove has awarded this movie with their "Family Approved" Seal for all ages.  You could even "Like" Family Movie Night on Facebook if you want.  That way you can find out about more FMN movies coming up.

Sounds like a good one!

Not sure if we get NBC or not. With no cable we only get a few channels and I have no idea which one would be NBC haha.
