“Those nostalgic for the fond portraits of eccentric Americana in Errol Morris’ early work – and pretty much everyone else – will be delighted by SOME KIND OF HEAVEN.” – Dennis Harvey, Variety
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 Village residents – and one interloper – who are unable to find happiness within the community’s pre-packaged paradise. Lance’s strength as a filmmaker is epitomized through the subtle nuances of melancholy that lie within the fabric of this film. With strikingly composed cinematography, this candy-colored documentary produced by Academy Award nominee Darren Aronofsky offers a tender and surreal look at the never-ending quest for meaning and love in life’s final act.
