Many of us have heard the phrase, “Home is where the heart is.” However, Netflix’s upcoming family movie, FINDING ‘OHANA shows that home is where our family is. In this movie, families can watch two children from Brooklyn (shout out to my borough) who, embark on an adventure to find treasure. But, the adventure doesn’t end there! On their quest for the long lost treasure, they find new friends and discover their Hawaiian heritage.
These days, all of us can use a family movie like this.
Watch the FINDING ‘OHANA trailer below for a sneak peek into the movie that will make your next family movie night special.
