Audience Reviews for All Summer in a Day


Based on the short story by Ray Bradbury, this tells the story of a small class of school children, particularly Margot, who are waiting for the sun to come out on the planet Venus, which happens very rarely. The rest of the time is filled with constant rainfall. I first saw this when I was very young. I recently rediscovered it on Youtube. The ending in the film was different from the one in the short story. The film ending was a little more meaningful. I hope that everyone could get a chance to see this. Good for children and adults.
