Movie Info

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.

Audience Reviews for Some Kind of Heaven

  • May 20, 2021
    The best moments are when Oppenheim narrows in on these almost Lynchian sequences (the acting teacher's speech to the class, the group of women all named Elaine, etc.) which given the fact that this is a documentary emphasizes the phony façade of The Villages in much better ways than a group of taking heads every could.
