You may have heard that P&G and Walmart have partnered to create made for TV family movies. Field of Vision to premiere Saturday June 11th at 8pm EST/ 7pm CST is on the heels of Truth be Told and Change of Plans among others. I never got the chance to view the latter but I did get the chance tonight to preview Field of Vision.
My intentions were to watch it with my boys but it is hard to crowd around a computer. So we are going to have to wait for the big screen (or our TV) to watch it together. I highly recommend this movie to parents that have children in middle/high school. Especially parents with children in team sports. With the amount of television channels and shows that children are exposed to these days it is refreshing to watch what I would compare to an “after school special”
Television with Meaning
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.
After watching this movie I definitely think I will be looking out for future Walmart and P&G made for TV family movies. I was very impressed with the lesson from the beginning to the end. Nothing was left unturned. I will admit that since I’ve had children I tend to cry at the smallest things. I found myself trying to hold back tears towards the end of this movie. Parents will totally understand when they see it for themselves.
Here is the Field of Vision Trailer
I also encourage you to stop by the Family Movie Night Facebook Page and discuss with others this upcoming movie, as well as chat with them after the movie premieres.
“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of P&G and received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.” You may read more of my disclosure here.
