Heaven Is For Real

  • Film

Time Out says

Every year has its fair share of massive roasted turkeys, and we’re guessing this loopy God-bothering melodrama might be a safe bet in 2014. Based on a ‘true story’ (just like the Bible), it’s the story of Pastor Todd Burpo (excuse you), whose three-year-old son returned from a near-death experience on the operating table talking of mysteries he couldn’t possibly understand, and claiming that he’d been to heaven where he met his deceased grandfather, and saw Jesus on his rainbow coloured horse (we’re not making this up). The book sold millions in America (of course it did), and the film version has attracted a surprisingly solid cast including Greg Kinnear as Burpo, Kelly Reilly as his long-suffering wife and, somewhat poetically, Thomas Haden Church in a supporting role.
