Overview

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

With an astoundingly accomplished eye for visual composition, and remarkable access to his trusting subjects, Lance Oppenheim makes a very memorable debut with this surreal fantasia of a documentary. Poignant, funny and insightful, it’s a delightful trip down the rabbit hole of modern America.
