Having children from 5 to 11, finding a family movie that suits all of our needs is always a daunting task. The girls like cartoon ones, while the boys think that's too babyish, (but secretly enjoy them); they prefer the action movies, and the girls usually don't like it. We usually settle on a "boys movie tonight, girls movie on Friday" type deal.
Not too long ago we had the privilege to review "Truth Be Told," a movie collaborated with families in mind from two very family friendly companies- Walmart and P&G. Well, this month they've made magic again and allowed us to preview their new movie, "Field of Vision".
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.
The premier of "FIELD OF VISION" is on Saturday,June 11 on NBC at 8pm ET/7pm CT. To watch the trailer and see if this might be something you and your family could enjoy, click on the widget below.
Looks good, huh? Thanks to our friends at Mom Central, Walmart, and P&G, we were able to preview this movie earlier this week. The reviews are back, and we loved it. Abbie liked the horses and the magic camera (video camera), but the story line was a little over her head. She was still attentive through it, but I would definitely recommend this film for elementary school aged kids and up. Everyone else really seemed to like it! Alex recognized the bad behavior the bully was presenting, which opened us up to a whole conversation about bullying. Unfortunately, this is something we have been very familiar with recently. My husband and I thought the movie was a little predictable, but overall, the kids had fun putting together the puzzle pieces as the story unraveled, and we truly enjoyed spending time with the kids while watching "Field of Vision".
So set the DVR, or make sure you're home with some popcorn and drinks, and get ready for another family movie night. Learn more about this great film and the cooperative effort to put more wholesome family films on prime time by visiting the Family Film Night Facebook page.
