Some Kind of Heaven
Director: Lance Oppenheim Run Time: 83 min.
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.
“There’s a lot of dancing in this movie, and it turns out that watching old people dance in an authentic way is really enjoyable.” ~ Beandrea July, Hollywood Reporter
“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
