Midway to Heaven
It has been years since Ned Stevens, a charming self-made success, lost his wife Kate to cancer. Yet he still can’t let go of her memory and move forward with his life. But when Liz brings home a new boyfriend from college, Ned finds that his comfortable world is turned upside down as Liz tries to divert his attention to Carol, an attractive single woman who lives in Ned’s neighborhood.
Midway to Heaven is a movie about matters of the heart. Ned (Curt Doussett) is a 43-year-old widower. His wife, Kate (Melanie Nelson), is deceased; yet, she seems to appear and talk to him, reassuring him that he needs to get on with his life. Ned’s daughter Liz brings home a new boyfriend, but Ned is the typical dad. The new boyfriend seems to be too “perfect,” so something must be wrong with him! Liz encourages her father to notice Carol, an attractive and single woman, who lives nearby.
The movie is very scenic and beautifully filmed and focuses on the fact that our loved ones would always want what is best for us. We are pleased to award the film our Dove Seal for All Ages, while noting that young children might not enjoy it as much as children 8 and up. It’s a good story worth watching.
