Based on the bestseller by Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven takes up where Its A Wonderful Life left off.
In the Capra classic, George Bailey gets a vision of life without him.
In this Hallmark Hall of Fame production, Eddie (Jon Voight), an amusement park maintenance man and war veteran, ends up in Heaven after an accident takes his life.
There he meets five people from his past: the Blue Man (Jeff Richards), the Captain (Michael Imperioli), Marguerite (Dagmara Dominczyk), Ruby (Ellen Burstyn), and Tala (Nicaela and Shelbie Weigel).
Each shows him how he impacted their life or they his--and not always for the better.
(In these flashbacks, Callahan Brebner and Steven Grayham play the young Eddie.)
The Five People You Meet in Heaven finds a unique and engaging way to make it.
