Family Movie Night: Who is Simon Miller?

I was thrilled to have the chance to preview another Family Movie Night selection, but life just kept getting in the way, and it wasn't until last night that I was finally able to watch "Who is Simon Miller?"  My family didn't watch this one with me, unfortunately, because I think they would have enjoyed it.

The basic story:
When unassuming geoligist 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.
Other than some technical issues which won't impact YOU viewing this movie on television tonight at 8 (7 Central), I really enjoyed the movie.  Family friendly, though a bit more scary than others I have viewed.  You can probably tell that from the synopsis... chases, abductions, guns (though I don't remember any gunshots), death threats...

You can view the movie trailer at the Family Movie Night website, plus read a whole lot more -- or you can check their Facebook page.

If you have broadcast television, I would encourage you to support this family friendly entertainment option brought to you by P&G and Wal-Mart.  And you can look for the DVD, available soon.

Disclaimer:  by blogging about this, I can have the opportunity to watch a special online screening of "Who is Simon Miller?" No other compensation was received.  All opinions are my own.
