The Crazy Suburban Mom: Who is Simon Miller?

Who is Simon Miller?

This summer I've been watching a lot of TV with my family.   And I don't mean we all sit in the same room with one TV, two smart phones and a computer; I mean every couple o' days, once a week or so we all watch the same show (commercials included because I hide the remote) like it was I don't know.... the nineteen fifties around here.

 It's been a lot of fun and besides watching the show and being together -  Everyone talks.  And I mean to each other.   I assume that's because no one's getting texted, tweeted or is otherwise electronically engaged.  

I'm always looking for something we can all watch so when Mom Central asked if I wanted to preview a new Family Movie Night offering (presented by Walmart and P&G) I said, Sold! Where do I sign up?

Here's a synopsis - The movie, Who is Simon Miller? is premiering on Saturday, August 6th on NBC at 8pm ET/7pm CT and is the story of a family turned upside down when their father suddenly disappears and they realize he was living a secret life (Finding out your dad has seven different passports'll do that....)

Take a look at the trailer...

 Who is Simon Miller? is a whole ice cream Sundae of fun topped with lessons about trust, love, and how (we) parents forget just how smart our kids are, all neatly wrapped up as a movie the whole family will love.

And the cherry on this fun Movie Sundae is that it's so much fun no one cares we aren't  attached to our smart phones for a while because we are attached to each other....

And isn't that the whole point?

So come check out Who is Simon Miller? it's premiering on Saturday, August 6th on NBC at 8pm ET/7pm CT 

Whole synopsis:

Like most families, the Millers have their challenges. Simon’s (Loren Dean) frequent business trips have created some distance between him and the rest of the family, leaving Meredith (Robyn Lively) stretched and struggling to keep things together. Daughter Sarah, an 18-year-old honor student, has recently gotten herself into trouble at school while son Kevin, 15, struggles to engage with anything outside of a video game…But these issues all prove to be trivial when Simon goes missing. Sensing something is not right, the family frantically searches Simon’s office for information. Discovery of a stash of passports, all with Simon’s picture but each with a different alias, reveals that their father has been keeping more than a few secrets. In a frantic phone call, Simon urges the family not to tell anyone of his disappearance, not even the authorities, right before the line goes dead. Who is Simon Miller? And what exactly has he gotten himself – and now his family – into?Shocked, scared and unsure if they can even trust the dad they thought they knew, the three embark on their own international mission to get him back. With Meredith’s sharp instincts, Sarah’s foreign language skills and Kevin’s natural techgenius, they try to unravel the mystery behind his disappearance. It’s a heartpounding family thriller that tests the limits to which families will fight for each other.
