A Walk in My Shoes Giveaway
It’s so hard to find quality movies these days that the whole family can enjoy. You know, movies without any swearing, sexual content, or underaged drinking. That’s why WalMart and P&G have teamed up to bring family movie night back with their third release – A Walk in My Shoes.
Starring Nancy Travis, Philip Winchester, and Yara Martinez, “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 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, 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 chances when Trish meets Molly, a mysterious stranger intent on helping her see things differently. After a car accident, Trish wakes up to find herself living the life of Cindy Kremer, the woman she 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.
Have you ever judged someone based on what you thought you knew? I know I’ve been guilty of it. A Walk in My Shoes made me take a second look and realize that sometimes things are not what it seems. The happy-go-lucky kid I see could be fronting a very difficult family life. The co-worker who seems not to care about anything may just be dealing with serious problems at home.
Seeing how Trish jumped to conclusions and assumed the worst of the people around her reminded me not to do the same thing. It was also a great message for my girls to be more accepting and tolerant of their friends and other kids in school.
So round everyone up, make a bowl of popcorn and tune into NBC for a great family movie! A Walk in My Shoes will be airing Friday, Dec 3, 2010 – 7pm CST on NBC.
