A Floridian garden of earthly delights and its discontents, SOME KIND OF HEAVEN follows retirees newly arrived at the fountain of youth. At The Villages, often called the “Disneyland for Retirees,” a married couple, a widow, and a bachelor search for Eden and a second bite at the apple, only to discover each of the deadly sins out on full display. From synchronized swimming to pickleball, the good life is waiting, as well as a discounted funeral package now at a new, lower price. A film that reminds us that we all leave this Earth the way we came.
