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 (R) nominee and Emmy (R) 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.

Noah Synopsis
A man is chosen by his world's creator to undertake a momentous mission before an apocalyptic flood cleanses the world. I recently saw Noah in theaters just before Easter. I thought it was good, but it was quite different and not the Biblical Noahmovie I've expected to see. A very good (and familiar) cast with Russell Crowe & Jennifer Connelly (reuniting from A Beautiful Mind) in the lead and in the title role as Noah and his wife. Emma Watson and Logan Lerman (plus Anthony Hopkins) were good addition to the cast.
