Have a fun family movie night this weekend with Hallmark Hall of Fame’s AWAY & BACK starring Jason Lee and Minka Kelly.
After the busy holiday season, January can be kind of a bummer. I try to keep the fun going by planning family nights. We usually have a family night on the weekends so I can let the kids stay up a little later. We make a fun snack like homemade caramel corn or slow cooker chex mix and then pick a movie to watch or game to play
This weekend, we are settling in as a family to check out Hallmark Hall of Fame’s new movie AWAY & BACK. Can you believe Hallmark has been producing family friendly movies for over 60 years?! I spent many hours watching Hallmark’s The Secret Garden as a young girl. AWAY & BACK is the latest in the series and is no exception to the Hallmark Hall of Fame legacy.
AWAY & BACK is a heartwarming, family-friendly film that includes adventure, humor and romance so there is something for everyone. When a family of swans makes their home on the Peterson farm, it’s love at first sight for 10-year-old daughter Frankie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones). But along comes no-nonsense ornithologist Ginny Newsom (Minka Kelly), who rushes in to “save” the majestic birds. For Frankie’s dad Jack (Jason Lee), it’s dislike at first sight when he encounters pushy, know-it-all Ginny. Frankie and her brothers are anything but neutral observers as they watch the initial hostility between their widowed father and the strong-willed Ginny transform into something else. Check out the trailer:
The movie premieres on Sunday, January 25 at 8/7 Central on Hallmark Channel. You can get a glance at the movie in the trailer below and enter the AWAY & BACK Trailer – Share to Win Sweepstakes!
