Hopefully most of you had the opportunity to watch the last heartwarming film Family Movie Night, Truth Be Told, sponsored by P&G and Walmart. Well thisSaturday June 10th at 8PM ET/7PM CT, they will be airing another family film titled Field of Vision. I am not a football gal, but the movie is not about football as much as about doing what’s right, even when it means sacrificing other dreams or goals you have.
I love feel good movies with strong, clear moral lessons and this is definitely one that I would feel fine watching even with my three-year-old. She would not fully understand it or appreciate it, but there aren’t any inappropriate sections I wouldn’t want her to see or drama that would make her scared or concerned. That is hard to find these days, even with family-oriented films, especially for the real little ones. I watched my sneak peek alone while my kids were asleep, so hope to snuggle up with the family and a bowl of popcorn this weekend when it airs on T.V. Mark your calendars, stock up on snacks and plan for a family night in this Saturday night!
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.
