Some Kind of Heaven

Nova exclusive! From producer Darren Aronofsky (Mother!) and The New York Times comes an utterly beguiling documentary by Lance Oppenheim, making his feature debut.

The Villages, located in Florida, started as a small retirement village before becoming the largest self-contained community in the USA. Projecting a candy-coloured palm tree-lined fantasy land, SOME KIND OF HEAVEN reveals the unexpected lives of residents experiencing retirement (or the inability to retire), mastering dance moves, experimenting with drugs, finding a new partner, and deciding which Golf Cart to buy. Constantly fascinating and unexectedly moving, Oppenheim's deadpan documentary explores the search for meaning in life's final act.
