I am super excited because it is almost time for another Family Movie Night movie! I have been enjoying Family Movie Night movies since the Spring of 2010. Our family loves watching movies together and the Family Movie Night movies are such wonderful movies.
Game of Your Life is the next installment of Family Movie Night and it premieres Friday December 2nd 8EST/7CST on NBC. I was recently able to preview th movie in advance and I am super excited about the movie.
Synopsis of Game of Your Life:
When industrious high school gamer Zach Taylor lands a prized scholarship to the prestigious Digital Institute of Game Design (DIGD), his future breaks wide open. The opportunity to study under gaming legend Marcus Bentton and alongside the country’s most creative minds will certainly propel him into a successful career as a video game designer. That is, if he can pass the infamous freshman project that eliminates more than half of the class within the first three months.
Paired with brilliant yet socially awkward teammates Phillip and Donald, the trio persuades Sara Ramirez – a determined and striking team leader with whom Zach has a history (and possibly a future) – to join their team. Working off-campus in the teched-out Lincoln Alley loft, the four set out to involve the entire campus in a quirky new social interactive game. But as the group becomes entrenched in the project, Zach learns that his father Billy, a widower, is facing growing financial woes at home. To help out, Zach accepts an opportunity to work directly with Marcus Bentton on a secretive side project that seems too good to be true. The effort requires nearly all of Zach’s time and energy, which he should be devoting to the project. Struggling to keep it together, Zach is torn between his responsibility to his team, his admiration for Bentton and a chance to help his father.
Everything comes to a breaking point when Zach’s team threatens to remove him from the group and the deceptive truth behind Bentton’s project comes to light. With the guidance of Professor Abbie Lambert, Zach must make a decision that not only affects his future, but the lives and livelihoods of the people around him as well. It’s a revealing story that recognizes the magnitude behind the choices we make and the importance loyalty plays in making good decisions.
I am so excited for the rest of my family to see this on Dec 2nd! My husband and my boys are all into video games so this movie will spark their interest based just on that. The movie has a great "storyline" and peaked my interest from the minute it began. I think the "lesson" in this movie about having to choose between helping family and pursing your own dreams is an excellent lesson for all ages! EXCELLENT movie!!
