  • Wallace smartly leaves room for skeptics of Burpo's account to maintain their doubt; what matters most is that audiences understand the film character's reasons for choosing to believe his son's vision/dream/delirium. show more

  • This company of actors pulls together and delivers a lot of punch to a pedestrian script inspired by quite an amazing tale. show more

    My husband and I watched this movie last night and loved it...Connor was wonderful and so believable. The whole cast was great and whether you believe or not, it was amazing to watch.

    I loved this movie and believe every word of it. Why are we all going to church reading the bible and praying, if we don't believe in it? It is a REAL place. Christ said " I have gone to prepare a place for you". This little boy saw that place.
