Family Movie Night - Field of Vision

Once again, thanks to Propeller Marketing, I was given a chance to snag a sneak peak at the newest Family Movie Night movie presented by Wal-Mart and P&G. The movie is called "Field of Vision" and, in my opinion, is the best one so far in this series of family friendly movies.

"Field of Vision" is being promoted as an anti-bullying movie. While that theme is prominent, I think the better theme would be "do the right thing." As anyone knows, being a teenager is tough. What if you were the new kid in school your junior year of high school and a foster kid to boot and the target of bullying? Pretty tough to fit in. What if you were the star quarterback and could do something to stop the bullying but risk loosing your childhood friend? Pretty tough decision. 

Star quarterback, Tyler McFarland, learns that some of his teammates have been bullying a troubled new transfer student. Aware that sharing this information with the coach might get his friends kicked off the team and ultimately cost them the state championship, Tyler must choose what's more important: winning or doing what's right.

When I first started watching the movie I admit to not being all that in to it. However, the story line began picking up quickly and by the end I had tears in my eyes. It was an excellent movie and one I'd watch again with my family in a heartbeat. The overriding theme about doing what's right no matter what is one that we can all stand to be reminded of often.

Field of Vision will be on NBC tonight, June 11th, at 8pm ET. I highly recommend popping a bowl of popcorn and having your own Family Movie Night.

If you'd like more info on the movie, you can check out their website, Facebook page, Moms 4 Family TV, or the review at Dove Foundation.
