Secrets of the Mountain: Review and Giveaway

Each weekend, we settle down with the kids for a special night of either family games or movie night.  While I love movie night, I find it quite challenging to find age appropriate programming for my children that my husband and I can tolerate as well.  So I am always excited to learn about our family-friendly entertainment options.


I was so sad to miss a special screening in New York City of  the new TV movie, “Secrets of the Mountain” but was fortunate enough to be able to get a sneak peak in my own home.  This movie, which premieres on NBC this Friday, April 16th, combines adventure and mystery with family values and togetherness.  I know I can certainly relate to the hectic, fast pace of a working Mom!  A little detail about the movie:

Somewhere between the demands of her career, her ex’s wedding and her kids’ busy schedules, Dana James is noticing her tight-knit family starting to unravel.  An unexpected offer to purchase her family’s mountainproperty sets up a weekend road trip, which she hopes will bring her family back together.  But when they arrive, they quickly learn that the mountain is much more than it seems.  An ancient secret and a treacherous quest will test the family like never before.  It’s an edge-of the-seat thriller that reminds us that when times are tough, families don’t run away from problems – they run back to each other.

Check out the trailer for yourself!
