"Field of Vision" from Walmart and P&G Family Movie Night
Walmart and P&G's newest Family Movie Night movie, Field of Vision, premiers Saturday, June 11, 2011 8pm ET on NBC.
Field of Vision stars Faith Ford, Tony Oller, Joseph Adler, Alyssa Shafer, and Philip Casnoff, and it's the story of Sinclair High School's star quarterback, Tyler McFarland, who is faced with doing the right thing even though it could mean costing the school the state championship.
Through some footage captured by his sister's mysterious old video camera, he learns that his teammates have been bullying Cory Walker, a new transfer student living with a foster family since his mother died. Tyler is faced with turning his friends in, knowing they may get kicked off the team.
The old camera also reveals some clues about Cory's past, and Tyler's sister Lucy sets out to convince her family to help him find the answers when they initially think she's imagined the clues.
I got a sneak peek of the movie, and I really enjoyed it. The whole family will enjoy the plot and the sports scenes as well as the element of mystery. The bullying theme is great for discussion and is realistic rather than hokey and could be a great way to launch a discussion with school-aged kids.
It's appropriate for all ages, but very young children could be a little bothered by a bullying scene or two. It's nothing outrageous, but worth noting for small ones sensitive to conflict.
