Who Is Simon Miller? Family Night TV

posted by Nell Minow

The latest in the Family Movie Night series on NBC is Who Is Simon Miller? this Saturday, August 6, at 8/7 central.    It is the story of a family discovery that the husband and father they thought they knew had another life — maybe many other lives.  Stars include Loren Dean (“Say Anything” and “Mumford”) and Christine Baranski (“Mamma Mia”).  It is an exciting spy story and a warm-hearted family drama.  And it raises some good questions for family discussion about when it can be difficult to find the time and the right words to tell our families the things they should know — and about how getting away from our daily concerns can strengthen family bonds, even in a high-stress environment.
