The film stars Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) 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.
“Heaven is For Real” is directed by Randall Wallace, the Oscar®-nominated writer of “Braveheart.” The screenplay is by Randall Wallace and Christopher Parker, based on the book by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent.
Joining Kinnear, Reilly and Corum in the cast are Emmy® Award-winner Margo Martindale (“August: Osage County”), Academy Award® nominee Thomas Haden Church (“Spider-Man 3”), and music by Nick Glennie-Smith.
