Our youth film critics reviewed the upcoming made for TV movie, “Field of Vision” this week and it was an absolute hit for ages 10 through 14. The theme is anti-bullying but it’s definitely more than that. We see a young boy, Cory, who is a foster child and moved from school to school. When he is transferred to a new high school, he joins the football team and is bullied by a few of the guys. The team captain realizes he needs Cory and confronts the bullies who just happen to be kids he’s been fest friends with since fourth grade. The storyline captivates both girls and boys. The football action grabs the attention of the boys and interaction of the team captain’s mother with Cory’s mom seems to appeal to girls’ sensibilities. Here’s what our kids had to say:

This movie is very inspiring. Tyler learns that it is important to do the right thing, even when it means sacrificing your relationship with your best friends. Tyler’s mother, Jodi, sees a struggling student, who she reaches out to. I recommend this movie to kids ages nine and up. It is a great family movie, but younger kids might not understand the complications between the characters and the drama that occurs. Gabriella Chu, age 14, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

This is a really good movie. It’s about an orphan boy who is really smart really good on the football field. However some people at his new school think he is trying to make them look bad. I think the acting in this is phenomenal, especially Joe Adler who plays Cory. I think that this is appropriate for ages 10 and up because it’s more psychological than visual. Sam Connan, Age 13, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

Field of Vision is a great movie about standing up for the truth and always pushing towards your goals. This movie is very enjoyable. My favorite scene would have to be when Cory, played by Joseph Adler, and Lucy exchange books for the first time because her compassion towards him is very sweet. This is a wonderful family film as it gives families a chance to talk about the important issue of bullying.Raven Devanney, age 13, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic
