I was recently contacted by Walmart/P&G about their new movie A Walk in My Shoes to air December 3rd, 2010 at 8/7c on NBC. It will air during Family Movie night which I thought was a great idea. That will allow families to come together and watch something great. Something they know will be good for everyone to watch. Sometimes it can be hard to find a movie that is good for everyone in the family.
“A Walk in My Shoes” makes viewers stop and think, “What would I learn if I stepped into someone else’s life?” Stressed-out high school teacher Trish Fahey (Nancy Travis, “Three Men and a Baby,” “Becker”) can’t understand her students’ lack of effort in the classroom and why their parents don’t seem to care. This is especially true of Justin Kremer (Cameron Deane Stewart), a popular, skateboard-loving, basketball star who is underperforming in her class. Trish has him suspended from the basketball team and quickly chalks up the situation as a case of bad parenting.
This perspective dramatically changes when Trish meets Molly (Yara Martinez), a mysterious stranger intent on helping her see things differently. After a car accident, Trish wakes to find herself living the life of Cindy Kremer (Jana Lee Hamblin), the woman she has rashly judged and criticized. Molly helps Trish discover that there is more to the story and learns a powerful lesson that affects everyone she interacts with, including her husband, daughter and the Marine next door. No one is left unchanged.”
I am a big fan of movies with a special message behind them. This one looks like it will be a great one with a great message. There is a tie in with the military which is great to see and I can’t wait to see this movie when it airs.
