P&G and Walmart have teamed up once again and released the next installment in their “Family Movie Night” series! The new action packed made for TV movie is called “Who is Simon Miller?” and it will premier on NBC on August 6, 2011 at 8pm ET/7pm CT.
I was able to get a sneak peak at “Who is Simon Miller?” and it reminded me of a show I watch (Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry?) where true amazing stories are told about spouses who are completely unaware of their partner’s secret life. Unlike the above show, “Who is Simon Miller?” touches on important meaningful topics, such as trust, loyalty and forgiveness. Being able to get passed the feelings of betrayal when a family member is not telling the truth is difficult, but necessary to rebuilding trust again for relationships to survive. How would you feel if you learned a family member was keeping a major personal secret from you? Would you be able to forgive and put it in the past?
“Who is Simon Miller?” teaches a number of important lesson in a highly entertaining way and I enjoyed watching it as I’m sure you will too!
This is the second year that Family Movie Night has provided fun and clean entertainment for families to watch together! We look forward to the new movies and hope they keep the great films coming!
Like most families, the Millers have their challenges. Simon’s (Loren Dean) frequent business trips have created some distance between him and the rest of the family, leaving Meredith (Robyn Lively) stretched and struggling to keep things together. Daughter Sarah, an 18-year-old honor student, has recently gotten herself into trouble at school while son Kevin, 15, struggles to engage with anything outside of a video game…
But these issues all prove to be trivial when Simon goes missing. Sensing something is not right, the family frantically searches Simon’s office for information. Discovery of a stash of passports, all with Simon’s picture but each with a different alias, reveals that their father has been keeping more than a few secrets. In a frantic phone call, Simon urges the family not to tell anyone of his disappearance, not even the authorities, right before the line goes dead. Who is Simon Miller? And what exactly has he gotten himself – and now his family – into?
Shocked, scared and unsure if they can even trust the dad they thought they knew, the three embark on their own international mission to get him back. With Meredith’s sharp instincts, Sarah’s foreign language skills and Kevin’s natural techgenius, they try to unravel the mystery behind his disappearance. It’s a heartpounding family thriller that tests the limits to which families will fight for each other.
