Based on a true story. A man was in a car crash and was in the car, without a pulse for an hour and a half, while EMT's and police waited for the coroner to pronounce him dead before he can be moved. A man comes along, who feels led to pray for the victim, gets in the car and starts to pray while singing praise songs. The 'dead' man starts singing along and EMT's confirm he now has a pulse. The victim fights his recovery, as he is angry that he was in heaven, only to have God bring him back in incredible pain. Was there a purpose to his return to earth?
The film is based on the real life story of Don Piper, who, driving home from a minister's conference in 1989, crashed into a semi-truck which had crossed into his lane. Presumed dead, Piper lay on a bed covered in tarp, when a passing minister who had also been at the conference came to pray over Piper's body and sang to him, with Piper soon joining in. His arm had been severed and his leg was barely attached to his body, forcing Piper to endure a long and brutal recovery, which included being bed bound for thirteen months. Piper claims to have seen Heaven while he was unconscious, and believes he was on his way there before being pulled back to Earth. Piper has said he was infuriated at God, as his injuries meant he had to endure incredible pain before eventually regaining his mobility. After suffering in silence, he wrote the book which this film is based on, and became an accomplished public speaker. His account of the accident, and his life since, sold seven million copies and has been translated into 46 different languages. See more »
90 Minutes in Heaven is a very inspirational movie
Hayden Christensen is Don Piper, a preacher who gets into a vehicle accident and seems dead when he's checked by authorities. Kate Bosworth as his wife Eva, who has to take care of him while he tries to recuperate. I'll stop there and just say this was quite an inspirational true story depicted on screen that I watched with my movie theatre-working friend. We both were very touched by what was happening and the scene where Don tells Eva about his experiences in Heaven was perhaps the most touching of those scenes. My favorite scene has Don's teenage daughter asking him to dance with her despite his struggles with his recovery and he just holds on to her while Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance" plays on the soundtrack. So on that note, 90 Minutes in Heaven is highly recommended.
