Family Movie Night

We love watching movies as a family.  Yes, there are other things we like doing as a family but we seriously love turning all the lights off, popping popcorn, and snuggling up together to lose ourselves in a movie.  Family Movie Night is providing opportunities to do just that.

Tonight we have the opportunity to catch a family movie again.  A Walk in my Shoes aired some time ago and for those of you that didn't catch it the first time I highly recommend you watch it this time.  It is a great movie that will make you think.

Here's a bit about it:

Ever judge someone just by looking at them? Of course, we’ve all made snap judgments about people. But what if we really got to know them? How would our opinions change? And what if we were forced to become them…how would the shoes fit then? Stressed-out high school teacher Trish Fahey can’t understand her students’ lack of effort and why their parents don’t seem to care.
This is especially true of Justin Kremer, a popular, skateboard-loving, basketball star who is underperforming in her class. Trish has him suspended from the team and quickly chalks up the situation as a case of bad parenting.This perspective dramatically changes when Trish meets Molly, a mysterious stranger intent on helping her see things differently. When Trish wrecks her car, Molly is there as Trish wakes to find herself living the life of Cindy Kremer, the woman she has personally judged and criticized. Trish discovers that there is often more to the story and learns a powerful lesson that affects everyone she interacts with. Her husband, her daughter, the ex-Marine next door… No one is left unchanged.

This movie should open up some great dialogue around the dinner table!  It airs tonight at 8/7 c on NBC.
