Congrats to our winner Cheryl W.
Much to my chagrin, my daughter would likely prefer to watch one of many vacuous reality shows that truly offer her nothing other than white noise and flashy caricatures. This is one of just many reasons I’m excited about the fact that family movie night is back with Walmart and P&G’s new made-for-TV movie “ this Saturday night at 8/7 C pm on NBC!
So why should you gather your kids round the TV- turn off their technological gadgets and FORCE them to sit with you on the couch to take in this film? Because it is the antithesis of viewing those- superficial- your kids aren’t learning much of anything except how to be lazy and irresponsible consumerists -reality type shows. It’s also the type of film that will engage all your senses and hopefully encourage some good old-fashioned communication between you and your kiddos!
Here’s a bit of what Saturday night’s movie Field of Vision which premieres SATURDAY NIGHT June 11th at 8/7 C pm is all about…
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.
And to get you in the mood to explore what you and your kids might be able to do with your VERY own video camera, I’m giving away a Family movie night kit which includes: candy and popcorn in a decorative tin and a video camera.
