Jon Voight, Ellen Burstyn, Jeff Daniels. Eddie is an 83-year-old war vet working as a maintenance man in an amusement park. When he dies while saving a young girl in harm’s way from a falling ride, he enters the afterlife and meets five people who will explain the meaning of his life. 2004/color/133 min/NR/fullscreen.Based on the bestseller by Mitch Albom (Tuesdays With Morrie), The Five People You Meet in Heaven takes up where It’s A Wonderful Life left off. In the Capra classic, George Bailey gets a vision of life without him. In this Hallmark Hall of Fame production, Eddie (Jon Voight), an amusement park maintenance man and war veteran, ends up in Heaven after an accident takes his life. There he meets five people from his past: the Blue Man (Jeff Richards), the Captain (Michael Imperioli), Marguerite (Dagmara Dominczyk), Ruby (Ellen Burstyn), and Tala (Nicaela and Shelbie Weigel). Each shows him how he impacted their life or they his–and not always for the better. (In these flashbacks, Callahan Brebner and Steven Grayhm play the young Eddie.) The point may seem simplistic–everyone is connected–but The Five People You Meet in Heaven finds a unique and engaging way to make it. –Kathleen C. Fennessy

I took away one star, because at least on my copy, the dialogue is hard to hear, so I turned the…

    A Special Journey!! The hundreds of awesome reviews on this film here, somehow don’t surprise me. I love movies that are highly spiritual and deep, and this one most definitely takes the cake on that! I did find that after the “war scenes” parts, it did tend to drag out a little. But every scene had a great deal of importance, like individual pieces of a puzzle that magically fit together when all said and done. I do believe that we all have a “God shaped” hole inside of us. And thus the most significant questions…

    A tear-jerker…but in a good way A friend of mine recommended this movie to me after I recommended the movie “The Astral City” to him. Both of us are very interested in spiritual matters so this movie was a natural. It relates the story of an old man who is killed trying to save a young girl from a malfunctioning ride on the amusement pier where he works. Once he passes over, he is met, one at a time, by five people (spirits) from his past whose job it is to illuminate his life and help him see its meaning. By about…
