A rainy afternoon movie
9 July 2001 | by morjanaSee all my reviews

"Past the Bleachers" is a perfect movie to watch on a rainy afternoon. Instant sunshine for your heart and soul. A style of movie that is, uh, the hallmark of Hallmark Entertainment.

This is a made for TV movie that originally aired on ABC in 1985. It is about a husband and wife struggling to continue on with their lives after the death of their 11 year old son. About their friends who care about them, and want to help them.

A charming movie, with some humor, poignancy, and love.
