90 minutes in Heaven
I just watched this movie 90 minute in heaven. I don’t know why I did. I normally prefer gun fighting, car chases, and easy women. This wasn’t any of that. It s the true story of a young Pastor, Don Piper and his wife Eva, their family, friends and congregation, Don died in a car accident and came back to life. Multiple operations and months in hospital, a year unable to walk, excruciating pain and all the trials and tribulations of sickness.
Hayden Christensen and Kate Boswoth are amazing. Dwight Yoakim, Michael Smith and Fred Thompson were great too. The acting and writing were superb. It could so easily have been maudlin or slow but no, it wasn’t. It was an amazing choreographed. Michael Polish was the director. As sensitive and thoughtful as a director could be.
No alien invasions, hero’s charging forward on elephants or lamborghinis and pole dancers. I loved it nonetheless. Truly brilliant moving and captivating.
