Heaven Is for Real

Based on the incredible true story


Heaven Is for Real
A pastor's young son claims to have visited heaven during a near death experience. He 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. Dad and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event, and to spread the word.

Tomatometer quote iconHeaven Is for Real boasts a well-written screenplay and a talented cast, but overextends itself with heavy-handed sequences depicting concepts it could have trusted the audience to take on faith.
