Family friendly movie: AWAY & BACK on the Hallmark Channel

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hallmark Hall of Fame for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.


We’re always on the lookout for family-friendly movies. While our family enjoys a good animated film and going to the movies is one of our favorite family “dates,” we also look for good movies to enjoy at home for a family movie night with popcorn and smoothies (or, if they’re lucky, hot cocoa!).

On Sunday, 1/25 (at 8/7 Central), Hallmark Hall of Fame will present a brand new family film on the Hallmark Channel: AWAY & BACK, starring Jason Lee and Minka Kelly, and directed by Jeff Bleckner, director of Hallmark Hall of Fame favorites like Remember Sunday and Loving Leah.


“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.”

Hallmark Hall of Fame has been offering uplifting, family-friendly films for more than 60 years and AWAY & BACK promises to be no exception!
