A current movie trend is the True Story. The Railway Man, Philomena, the upcoming Million Dollar Arm and Walking with the Enemy are some of the April and May titles. Just released is Heaven is for Real, and KidsPickFlicks' Movie Star Movie Crix Joel Courtney (Super 8) and Katherine McNamara (Contest) say it's a film that will get you thinking:
"What happens after we die? This age old question is tackled by an adorable 4 year old named Colton in Heaven is for Real. The film follows the story of the Burpo family, headed by Renaissance man Todd, the towns pastor, wrestling coach, fireman, and garage door repairman, as they struggle with questions of life, death, faith, family, and community surrounding the near death of their son Colton. The cast of this film was quite brilliant creating an ensemble that had a genuine thread of connectivity and community between each character. Standout performances from Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly, Thomas Haden Church, Margo Martindale, and Connor Corum truly added a special authenticity but also a magic to the film. Perfect for the Easter season, the movie encompasses the best elements of a character driven and a plot driven film. Viewers will walk away pondering their own beliefs with a hopeful story of a little boy's journey to inspire hope where all was lost. 4 stars."
