The Five People You Meet in Heaven
Mitch Albom wrote the screenplay for this made-for-television adaptation of his best-selling story, which offers a novel perspective on life, death and the meaning of our existence. The story revolves around an elderly maintenance man, who spent most of his life keeping the rides at an amusement park in good condition. He had a hard life, sustaining a serious injury during World War II and losing his wife and often wonders what the purpose behind it all is. He’s killed one day while trying to save a young girl who has fallen from a ride and in the afterlife, he’s greeted by five people he knew during his lifetime who share with him a different perspective of some of the key moments in his life and what was to be learned from them. The Five People You Meet in Heaven features Jon Voight, Ellen Burstyn, Jeff Daniels and Michael Imperioli.
