Some Kind of Heaven

At The Villages, often called the "Disneyland for Retirees", we meet four residents living on the margins, striving to find happiness. From synchronized swimming to pickleball, the good life is waiting, as well as a discounted funeral package now at a new, lower price. While most residents have bought into the community's packaged positivity, married couple Anne and Reggie wrestle with Reggie’s deteriorating grip on reality and psychedelic drug use; Barbara, a widow, seeks second love; and Dennis, an 82-year-old bachelor living out of a van, searches for a wealthy woman to take care of him for his remaining years. Though the film "illustrates the gap between The Villages' advertising copy and the practical reality of living there", Some Kind of Heaven invests more in the "dreams and desires of its residents".
