‘Some Kind of Heaven’

Some Kind of Heaven Friday-Thursday, January 15-21

Hello and welcome once again to your Crandell Theatre Wednesday weekly. This week in the Crandell’s Virtual Screening Room , FilmColumbia co-artistic director and former senior film curator at MoMA Laurence Kardish bring us first-time feature director Lance Oppenheim’s highly entertaining and candid documentary, Some Kind of Heaven.

A Floridian garden of earthly delights and its discontents, Some Kind of Heaven cracks the manicured facade of The Villages, America’s largest retirement community – a massive, self-contained utopia located in Central Florida.

Some Kind of Heaven

The Villages made headlines recently when a cavalcade of golf carts flying Trump flags collided with a group of Biden supporters but this brouhaha proves what young filmmaker Lance Oppenheim found in The Villages when he made Some Kind of Heaven-–a lively group of feisty seniors negotiating age perkily. Produced by Darren Aronofsky and The New York Times, Some Kind of Heaven is a refreshing, surprising and enormously entertaining portrait of a community where the sun seems never to set.

“Fresh out of Harvard, 23-year-old director Lance Oppenheim quickly dispenses with any facile or reductive ideas about aging gracefully.–Beandrea July, The Hollywood Reporter
