About the Movie

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. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Apr 16, 2014

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. – Adam Markovitz, Entertainment Weekly, Apr 20, 2014

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. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Apr 21, 2014

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. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Apr 16, 2014

Very good film.

Sad that people are giving it bad reviews based on their own personal religious beliefs (or lack thereof) instead of the movie quality.
