Movie Info

Robert Tate Miller adapts Lynn Austin's best-selling, Christy Award-winning 2001 novel for the screen in the family-friendly drama Hidden Places. Sydney Penny (All My Children) stars as Eliza Wyatt, a Christian widow and mother of two grappling with a loss of faith, and forced to pull in the harvest before the bank forecloses on her family property. At the end of her rope, Eliza receives some greatly valued assistance from down-and-out military veteran Gabe Harper (Jason Gedrick) and venerable Aunt Batty (The Partridge Family's Shirley Jones). The film thus sings an ode to selfless love, the commitment to family, and the necessity of faith in God and others. Yelena Lanskaya directs this Hallmark Entertainment production.

Audience Reviews for Hidden Places

No, this isn't an epic film. It is a film of huge proportions, the kind of which just aren't made generally by any major studio. Hallmark Hall of Fame does it again with a real humanistic story. Times get rough for a mom with two kids and a grandfather that passes before his time. In comes, by the grace of chance, a white knight. Although, he looks like a bum. His sword is his war time experience and reading. Polite to a fault, Gabriel, or Gabe comes to the rescue of the farm. Not accepted with open arms, the mom only accepts him with encouragement from the aunt, Shirley Jones of Music Man fame (1962 version). Yes, this is Marion the Librarian, made to look much older than she really is, but act she can and does in this glorious rendition of the human spirit overcoming the worst days. Suggest you give this one a try... unless you have a heart of real stone.

Sappy and well meaning family television drama. Fair acting. Shirley Jones does a good job and rises above the rest of the cast. It's television roots are clearly evident.
