Last week I gave you a sneak peek into the latest Family Movie Night movie Who is Simon Miller? Today I want to give you a review, hopefully without spoiling it for you.
Here is the synopsis:
When unassuming geoligist Simon Miller mysteriously disappears one night, the Miller family is thrown into a desperate search to find him. Simon’s wife Meredith and their two kids, Sarah, 18 and Kevin, 15 frantically search Simon’s office for information. When they find a stash of passports, all with Simon’s picture but each with a different alias, they realize that their father has been keeping more than a few secrets. Who is Simon Miller? And what has he gotten himself – and his family – into? Not sure they can even trust the dad they thought they knew, the Millers embark on an international mission to get him back. It’s a heart-pounding adventure that tests the limits to which families will fight for each other.
I had the opportunity to view the movie last week and chat with the movie’s lead actress Robin Lively during the screening. It was a lot of fun as Robin would occasionally clue us in to what to look for in upcoming scenes. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and it was exactly the escape I needed at the end of a long, hard day. I can’t wait to watch it as a family on August 6th at 8/7c on NBC.
When I first saw the promo for the movie I wasn’t sure I was going to like it but I agreed to preview it and I’m glad I did. This movie has something for just about everyone, wholesome family values, action, adventure, a 15yo tech geek and an 18yo linguist. Since this is a spy movie there is some violence but compared to most TV shows it is very minor. There are some twists and turns that have you guessing who the good guys are for the first half of the movie too.
Here is a promo video to get you excited about the movie.
Make sure you set your DVR or mark you calendar for Family Movie Night Saturday, August 6th 8/7c on NBC.
