The well reviewed animated film Mr Peabody & Sherman starts Friday at the Fairfield Heaven Is For Real posterOrpheum Theatre. "A smart, funny and beautifully designed feature" - N.Y. Post. This is fun for kids and the adults that remember the Mr. Peabody and Sherman segments on The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show. The Book Thief is showing free at the FF library Friday evening.
 
The very filmosophical Heaven Is for Real opened Wednesday and is showing at the Ottumwa 8. It's the "true story of a small-town father (Greg Kinnear) who must find the courage and conviction to share his son's extraordinary near-death experience with the world." I'm excited to see this and hope to watch with my son Shane and friend Thomas "TJ" Gates, who experienced a profound near-death experience, or NDE. Our conversation while driving home will be intriguing! “Gentle, well-meaning and suffused with the easygoing tolerance that largely characterizes its small Midwestern community setting, Heaven Is For Real is well timed to coincide with collective speculation on transcendence in its varied, most inexplicable forms.”- Ann Hornaday, "Washington Post"

We'll talk about that, start our summer movie preview and more, on the Filmosophers Movie Talk show, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays, 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings 11:30. Heaven Is for Real "is so down-to-earth and supernatural at the same time, you better buckle up. I've been blessed with faith and belief in Jesus, Mary, heaven, and angels. So like the pastor in this movie, these weren’t new concepts. It’s seeing them with new eyes that will change your heart and actions, possibly and hopefully forever." - Marya Jauregui, CatholicMom.com
