HEAVEN IS FOR REAL – Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL. The movie brings this true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world. The film stars Academy Award (R) nominee and Emmy (R) award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth … things he couldn’t possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.
Q-Tips say: Mr. Q did not like it as much as Mrs. Q. Mrs. Q says: Read the book and it was more detailed than the movie however, she did enjoy the movie. When children talk about having seen heaven, they usually have few preconceived notions regarding God, and the people who have died – that is why it is so interesting. It has been said that when we see people from the past – usually they are seen when they are younger rather than as they were when they are old and near the end of life.
