The newest P&G Family Movie Night movie is Field of Vision, premiering on Saturday, June 11 on NBC at 8 p.m. Eastern time! I was really excited about this one – we love sports-related, family-friendly movies!
Field of Vision is a bit of fantasy and sports drama and for kids and teens, and is about a troubled young transfer student and football player, Cory Walker, who is being bullied by other guys on the football team. Tyler McFarland, the star quarterback, finds out in a very strange way and finds himself with a choice to make – will he turn his teammates in so they can win or stand up for Cory? Tyler’s younger sister is involved, too. This imaginative young girl has found an old “broken” camcorder that shows her fantastic things. Unfortunately, no one (not even her family) believes that the things she says she sees are real. Ultimately, she has to prove that she’s telling the truth to protect a friend.
We watched this last night online and really enjoyed it! I thought the acting was terrific and especially liked Tyler’s little sister’s character and the inclusion of classic books. When the kids were having a hard time dealing with school stresses, they would dive into these old hardcover novels like Treasure Island. Awesome!
Although it appears to be all about sports, if your kids aren’t really into sports there isn’t so much football that only football fans will like it. There is plenty of other plot. It’s really a well-balanced movie, made for the enjoyment of everyone in the family!
I think this is a wonderful movie for both teens and children and their families. We loved it and recommend tuning in tomorrow to watch this one – it’s a gem!
