HEAVEN IS FOR REAL
This film is based on the true story of a young boy who nearly died and is able to tell about what he saw in the afterlife.
Based on the No. 1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, this tells the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son's extraordinary, life-changing experience. The film stars Greg Kinnear and Kelly Reilly as the real-life couple whose son, Colton, claims to have visited Heaven during a near-death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth ... things he couldn't possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.

His highly controversial experiments have made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed -- to be a participant in his own transcendence. Their worst fears are realized as Will's thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.
