Who is Simon Miller? - Family Movie Night, August 6th at 8/7 on NBC

Next Saturday, August 6th, NBC is airing the latest Family Movie Night sponsored by Walmart and P&G. It will be on at 8PM Eastern, 7PM CST. Who is Simon Miller? has an exciting spy movie plot. What struck me the most was the importance of honesty, the ripple effect of lies and betrayal, and what lengths that people will go through for people that they love. (even if they aren't perfect)
It was fun to watch, although some plot aspects require a leap of faith - I'm always happy to go along for the sake of a good story.  The only caution would be that there is danger, lives are sometimes put in danger, and the possibility of assassination comes in to play.  Guns are drawn, but the only injuries come from hand to hand combat.

Here is the website synopsis:
When unassuming geologist 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 am happy to promote Family Movie Night.  I am so glad that there are companies providing safe, family programming when the content and the commercials are fine for family viewing.
