Well guess what: another movie which reduced me into a ball of bawling mess.
Based on the true story of the Burpo Family, the movie (and the book) "Heaven is for Real" tells the story of Colton, a four-year old kid who visited Heaven and came back to tell the world about it.
Kinda absurd, right? Yep.
But the thing is: we may or may not believe Colton’s account. One thing’s for sure though; that Heaven (be it a state of mind or an actual place) is real. All you need is faith. The movie ultimately tells us and makes us realizes that yes, for something to be real, we must believe in its existence. That once we let a sliver of doubt enter our hearts our resolve weakens which will in turn make us believe less. Hence, making our character less strong. That’s where our spirit usually crumbles and we fall into a dark phase in our life. Kinda like a domino effect-ish. So yeah, the movie succeeds in putting that aspect into light. Above all, it’s a good movie. Do watch it. It’s a nice respite for the weary soul.
Peace and love!
