ANGELIKA’S NOTE

With Sundance Film Festival Official Selection 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. Rated 95% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and bolstered by 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. "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" (Variety).
