I mentioned earlier this week… I was allowed to have a sneak preview of the new Family Movie Night feature Field of Vision that airs tomorrow night (Saturday 6/11) at 8/7 CT. It’s not often you see feel good family movies with a fabulous moral being aired anymore. This one is worth DVRing and watching several times.
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.
Cory’s story will capture your heart. I felt so horrible for him every time he was being bullied. A subject matter like this is timely. Bullying is happening more often than you might know. I was subjected to bullying in elementary school and it can be torturous. Using this movie as a platform to open the lines of communication would be a fabulous idea.
