Family Movie Night “Field of Vision” Airing Saturday, June 11 on NBC at 8pm ET/7pm CT.

 

I had the wonderful opportunity to once again preview a Family Movie Night presentation. This time is was “Field of Vision” presented by Walmart and P&G and starring Faith Ford of Murphy Brown fame. I also had the wonderful opportunity to chat live with Faith while watching the movie which always gives me a thrill. 🙂

DiannaR1: Such an important and relevant movie in this day and age.
Faith Ford: Agreed!

Storyline: 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 really enjoyed watching this movie with my boys. Bullying is something that everyone has had happen to them at least one point in their life. I know for me, school wasn’t always a great place for me to be. I was teased and bullied because I was shy and then because I was heavy in High School. It is a very painful thing to go through and I still carry the emotional scars with me to this day. That is why a movie like this is so important in the day and age where kids are actually killing themselves over being bullied. This breaks my heart.

As parents, it is important to talk to our kids about bullying and when gentle ribbing goes too far. Field of Vision does a great job showing all angles of bullying and how we as parents, teachers and adults can help stop this from happening. But it also does a great job of showing how kids can help stop the bullying themselves by speaking up and telling an authority figure as well as talking to those who are doing the bullying.

All of the actors in this movie do an amazing job and if you have children, this is a must watch Family Night Movie! The more we can teach our kids about bullying, the better their lives will be.

If you would like to watch another great family movie, the premiere of “Field of Vision” is on Saturday, June 11th on NBC at 8et./7ct.  You can find out more at the official Family Movie Night “Field of Vision” website and you can fan the Family Movie Night Facebook page.
