Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, Heaven Is For Real brings to the screen the 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® nominee and Emmy® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Preachy and pretty, "Heaven" is a classy-looking product with a vanilla flavor and a pastel palette.
Rotten: There's no antagonist, no resolution, and no real climax - just a series of mildly charming scenes in which Colton shares heavenly knowledge while his family reacts with awestruck tears.
Fresh: A well-acted, family-friendly and timely movie for Easter audiences that is just as much about appreciating life on Earth as it is about what comes after.
Fresh: It is the rapport between Kinnear and the boy that really holds the film together. They make the father-son relationship believable in a way that grounds "Heaven" and gives it some of its best moments.
Heaven is for Real..
This movie is wonderful this little boy told the truth God Bless Him.. I know because I was there.. I was 28 yrs. old had a wife good job two children 2 yrs, & 5 weeks old. I was in church telling Jesus how happy I was & next day lost everything I had accident at work. I was in a coma almost a month when I woke up I couldn't walk or talk . My wife couldn't take it & left with the children I was alone with only the menory of Jesus telling me he was going to give everything back. Four years later I was walking, talking back to work married again with two more children of my own.. Believe in Jesus..
