Storyline

SARAH MIILLER, known to her grandchildren as 'Nanny,' is still slim and athletic in her early seventies. She's a successful author, is feisty, intellectual and full of fun. Her granddaughter, KATIE WHITMAN is closest to her 'Nanny' and continually tries to get her to ride the highest roller coaster in the nearby theme park. Nanny refuses, confiding to Katie that she's deathly afraid of heights. This causes Katie to divulge her biggest secret that she is terrified of dying. Sarah hopes that she can help Katie deal with her anxieties over time. Katie is planning her 11th birthday party for her friends at the theme park and makes Nanny promise to attend. She wouldn't miss it for the world, but she still won't go on the roller coaster! Now widowed and having just written a best-selling, semi-autobiographic novel, SARAH reminisces about her early career days during WWII. YOUNG SARAH remembers her courtship with DAVID, and a kindly old porter who helps her join her fiancé before he ships ... Written by Olliewood Films

I really liked this one!
25 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For Heaven's Sake has a superb line up of talent is behind it. I really enjoyed watching it.

The clever screenplay by TV writer, Ann Marcus, an Emmy Award recipient for the cult classic TV series, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, is tight, funny and heart-rending.

It is directed with an assured hand by director, Nat Christian, who creatively weaves an intoxicating mixture of romp and human drama. Christian also directs his actors exceptionally well giving them the freedom to explore the depths of their comedic as well as deep emotional ranges.

The superb cast headed by Florence Henderson gives us diverse characterizations, engrossing to watch.

Florence Henderson captivates us in her moving depiction of a woman who goes to heaven and then tries to maneuver her way out of it in order to keep a promise to her granddaughter.

Allison Lange, who plays a young Florence, has a star's screen presence. David Paetkau, always honest, is vulnerable and appealing.

Stephanie Patton is one heck of an actress. This girl (10 years old?) should be a major player in the years to come. Yanni King is lovely as a comedic assistant in heaven. Kathryn Gordon brings deep emotion to her character. An excellent performance by Time Winters had me laughing throughout his whole scene. Quinn Redeker is great, as he always is, as Florence's suitor. Newell Alexander is charming and very appealing. Denice Duff is a talented actress who should be seen more. Jorge Elias is a blast. TV stars Skyler Gisondo and James Tupper are great, albeit in smaller roles.

The movie has a pattern of some very interesting camera angles. I liked the music very much. Lots of laughs with bittersweet moments tugging at you.
