Some Kind of Heaven explores life inside The Villages, America’s largest retirement community, in central Florida. Referred to as the “Disneyland for Retirees,” this planned community offers residents a utopian version of the American yesteryear. While most have bought into its packaged positivity, we meet four residents living on the margins, striving to find happiness. Married couple Anne and Reggie wrestle with Reggie’s deteriorating grip on reality; Barbara, a widow, seeks second love; and Dennis, an 82-year-old bachelor living out of a van, looks for a way in. Biting, tender, and surreal, director Lance Oppenheim’s feature debut challenges our stereotypes around aging, emboldening its characters to live as vibrantly as possible in the time they have left.
