Movie Review Friday: Field of Vision

I had the chance to watch the preview of Procter & Gamble/Walmart's new Family Movie Night film Field of Vision. I had heard good things about this film, so I very much looked forward to viewing it.

Field of Vision tackles the issue of bullying. When Cory Kimble, a 17-year-old foster child, moves to a new school, his academic abilities put him at odds with the football team at his new school. However, the school's counselor sees potential in Cory, and seeks to help him find out more about his parents, as well as encourage him to go off to college. Tyler McFarland, the football team's star quarterback, must make a tough decision to face the bullies within his team and risk losing the state championship. Simultaneously, Tyler's sister finds a malfunctioning camera, providing hints that can potentially help both Tyler and Cory overcome their obstacles.

Field of Vision is definitely family friendly! You won't have to worry about fast-forwarding anything with this film. Also, I thought that this film featured amazing acting, especially from Tyler McFarland (played by Tony Oller) and his mother (played by Faith Ford). Also, a great surprise came in, when over the radio in Tyler's car came "Light Up the Sky" by The Afters!

Although I loved the film overall, I thought that the camera scenes were quite ridiculous, and seemed to be supporting magic. It did keep the film interesting, because the camera "showed" insight into Cory's past, but it also took away from the film in general, in my opinion.

Overall, Field of Vision is very family friendly, tackles a great issue, has great actors, and a wonderful storyline. Be sure to check out this film when it premiers on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 8/7c on NBC! Check out more about the film at Family Movie Night's official website, here!
