Echoing in the deepest depths of space, a humble prayer ascends from Maire Taylor, a smart, beautiful businesswoman who asks that her husband find the strength and wisdom to let go of their 9-year old marriage - While a second prayer comes from Billy Taylor, a hopelessly romantic artist who asks that his wife receive the strength and wisdom to hold on. From these humble pleas come an answer in the form of a little miracle (an 8-year-old runaway from heaven) who takes it upon herself to rekindle the once-intimate friendship and romance that has slipped away from Billy and Maire after a heart-wrenching loss. Using all of her skill and charm, as well as some well-intentioned mischief, she comically sets out to heal their broken hearts and save their marriage by helping them get back to the basics of love.

This Movie Works - Top of its Class
14 January 2017 | by dial911bookSee all my reviews

We live in a movie age that prizes high power special effects and depicts countless criminal acts from theft to robbery to torture to murder to mass murder. So the non-vicious, non-violent movies that are made can seem tame, maybe boring.

Don't let the insanity of evil and violence fill your every entertainment moment. Try a movie that explores the human condition played out in normal lives, one that explores the spiritual dimensions, one that makes you think and laugh and cry a little, too.

Wife and I were gripped and held by this movie, start to finish. Others here have written about the plot and the strengths of the acting and directing -- and we agree with those positive reviews. Heaven Sent is a family-friendly movie that blends some levity with serious life challenges, triggering something deeper in the process.

This movie ranks at the top of movies among the Lifetime and Hallmark channel offerings, and in our view, is nearly as good a film as Family Man. We'll watch it every year from here on.
