Field of Vision Review

I was invited by P&G to view an advanced screening the upcoming TV movie "Field of Vision" [facebook].  The movie is scheduled for 8PM EST/ 7PM CST, June 11th on NBC.  The movie focuses on the current hot topic issue of bullying.

Field of Vision revolves around the high school quarterback Tyler who witnesses some of his teammates bullying new guy Cory.  The football team is a couple of wins away from the state championship and turning in the instigators could mean a potential loss.

The new guy, Cory, is an orphan and pretty close to turning 18 and being booted from the foster system.  Turns out he's really smart and good at football too.  After the bullying, he quits the team and just wants to be left alone.  He becomes friends with Tyler's little sister, Lucy.

At the beginning of the movie, Lucy is given a magic video camera.  The camera doesn't always work and occasionally turns on by itself and sounds like R2-D2.  This is when Lucy, and eventually Tyler look into the viewer and can see things happening or that have happened.

It's one of those movies where things happen and there's no explanation (like with the magical camera), and an explanation is not really needed.  I'm not a big fan of TV movies, but I really liked this one.  I enjoyed the story and was pleased with the outcome.

It's a great family movie and something I feel kids as young as five would understand and enjoy.

So if you're planning a movie night for this Saturday at 8PM EST / 7PM CST, I recommend "Field of Vision" on NBC.
