You all know how important family-friendly movies and tv shows are to me. And, lately, it seems that good, quality shows the whole family can watch are becoming few and far between. If, by some miracle, you happen upon a family-friendly show, you then have to worry about commercials for scary movies, or other garbage coming on. It’s a viscous cycle, and parents are having a hard time winning this battle.
But, Walmart and P&G have heard our cries, and they are committed to bringing back Family Movie Night. Families can once again gather around the tv, snacks in hand, ready to settle in for a few hours and enjoy a movie together.
This Saturday, you can catch the premier of Field of Vision, a story about a boy that must decide what’s more important: Winning the championship game or doing what’s right.
Field of Vision premiers Saturday, June 11th at 8/7c on NBC.
I got the chance to preview an advanced screening of Field of Vision thanks to Mom Central. WOW! What a great movie! I am super excited to watch it with my entire family this weekend.
My six year old son, Jace, is really into football right now, and I know he’s going to love this movie. Not only are there action-packed scenes, but there’s a moral to the story. Actually, there are a couple of lessons in the movie that must be learned, and they will make for a great discussion time with my kids during the commercial breaks.
So, what’s the movie about?
Well, Tyler McFarland, the star quarterback at Sinclair High School, uses an old malfunctioning video camera and captures some very strange footage. He learns that some of his teammates have been bullying a new transfer student named Cory. Tyler then has to make the tough decision of whether to tell his coach or not. If he tells, his friends could get kicked off the team and that could cost the championship game.
While all of that is going on, Tyler’s sister, Lucy, learns that the new student, Cory, has a secret past. Lucy then has to convince her family, including her mom (played by Faith Ford), that she’s not making these things up. She then has to get her entire family on board to help find answers that Cory needs.
I love that I didn’t have to worry about any scenes, language, or innuendos in the movie. It’s just a good movie – the kind that are so hard to find any more. I am so excited to see how my kids react to it this Saturday night. I’ve set my DVR to record it, because I have a feeling this is one movie the kids will want to watch over and over!
Tune in Saturday, June 11th at 8/7c on NBC to catch the premier of Field of Vision.
