Editor’s note: This monthly series, “5 Family-Friendly Things,” spotlights five family-friendly entertainment choices on film, DVDs, streaming or television.

He’s a high school wrestler. He’s a talented public speaker, too, and we see that on display as he gives a speech about his adoption in front of a large audience. As he’s speaking on stage,...
