This is a poignant family movie for all to enjoy. The actor who portrays the lead child character, Colton Burpo, is adorable and I expect to see more of him in films. The storyline is inspirational and debuts in theatres during a Holy time of the year, Passover…Good Friday and Easter/Resurrection Sunday. One of the film’s producers is Bishop T. D. Jakes whose faith based film projects usually do very well at the box office. The book of the same name is a best seller. Also the lead actress, Kelly Reilly, has an upcoming new television series on ABC debuting soon titled ‘Black Box’.

2 thoughts on “‘Heaven is for Real’ Movie Review”
The book, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL was a fascinating read for me. For many it has given them hope for eternal life. To me, this is a far too important a subject to put my hope in a little boy’s experience. I wanted to see what God had to say so I went to the Bible. I have written a Bible study about heaven. I would be delighted to send you a free copy. Email me at email@example.com and I will email you a copy. I was disappointed in the movie, they added some things they did not happen and left out other great information. I suggest that if you have only seen the movie, you read the book. Trish Pickard
Thanks for the comment/post Trish. I haven’t read the book and may put it on my list yet I did enjoy the movie.
