Synopsis

Hallmark Hall of Fame to premiere on April 23, 2006, 9 – 11 PM ET/PT on CBS. Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden leads a stellar cast in this movie. Harden plays Vicki Miller, a writer whose carefully-ordered life is turned upside-down when her 16-year-old nephew, Bobby (Taylor Handley) unexpectedly arrives on her doorstep. Bobby desperately needs help, and Vicki suspects he is the victim of an abusive past.

Dove Review

Sometimes the effects of a dysfunctional family do not appear until a situation comes to light. “In From the Night” brings that awareness to Vicki through her nephew Bobby. In helping him change his life she becomes aware of things in her own life that she has tried to deal with. This is a very emotional story.

In dealing with these tough subjects of abuse and mental illness in a dysfunctional family, Hallmark has presented a very heartwarming film, one that shows sometimes it takes others in need to help in the process of healing our own wounds. Because of the subject content and some of the abuse flashbacks we recommend it for twelve and above.
