Some Kind of Heaven
In sunny central Florida lies The Villages, America’s largest retirement community. A self-described “Disney World for retirees”, it promises to be a palm tree-lined paradise for its 115,000-odd residents to stage their final act. Produced by Darren Aronofsky, Lance Oppenheim’s Some Kind of Heaven offers a fly-on-the-wall insight into this fascinating microcosm of extreme Americana, focusing on ‘Villagers’ Anne, Reggie, Barbara and Dennis. Each villager exposes their cracks in the veneer of this so-called heaven, where not everyone finds eternal happiness so easy to attain.
Why You Should See This Film
