Found this movie after years !!!, 21 October 2004
Author: Alexander from Vancouver

I remember seeing this movie as a kid, it struck me hard enough that I actually have been trying to find it for ages.

The plot as I remember was a group of kids that live on this constantly raining, constantly gloomy planet and the sun only comes out once ever few decades or so, everyone is looking forward to it but because of someones cruelty the main character misses her chance to play in the sun, sad ending.

Some people have said this movie is alluding to Vancouver itself, seeing as how its rainy, dark and gloomy here 8 months out of the year, I think I can see that comparison but I don't know if Bradbury meant that or not.

I want to to thank Lupin for finding the link on IMDb, thanks IMDb for having the best movie DB out there and thanks "" for the awesome forum.
