SOME KIND OF HEAVEN

“Those nostalgic for the fond portraits of eccentric Americana in Errol Morris’ early work – and pretty much everyone else – will be delighted…”

Starts January 15

With SOME KIND OF HEAVEN, first-time feature director Lance Oppenheim cracks the manicured facade of The Villages, America’s largest retirement community – a massive, self-contained utopia located in Central Florida. Behind the gates of this palm tree-lined fantasyland, SOME KIND OF HEAVEN invests in the dreams and desires of a small group of Villages residents – and one interloper – who are unable to find happiness within the community’s pre-packaged paradise. With strikingly composed cinematography, this candy-colored documentary offers a tender and surreal look at the never-ending quest for finding meaning and love in life’s final act.

A film by Lance Oppenheim. Produced by Darren Aronofsky, Kathleen Lingo (The New York Times), Jeffrey Soros and Simon Horsman, Melissa Oppenheim Lano, Pacho Velez, and Lance Oppenheim US. 83 mins.
