Overview

Alan Rudolph directed this offbeat, boy-meets-girl romance in which boy dies, dead boy meets dead girl, dead boy loses dead girl, and dead boy tries to find dead girl again. The tale begins is a small Pennsylvania town, where Mike Shea Timothy Hutton dreams of escaping small town life and moving to California with his girlfriend Brenda Mare Winningham. But Brenda leaves him with his motor running and Mike takes off alone. On the way, he rescues a woman and her children from an icy river but perishes himself. He finds himself in Heaven, where he is greeted by Aunt Lisa Maureen Stapleton, who explains the rules and regulations. Once in the ethereal realm, Mike falls in love with a heavenly lass with flaxen locks named Annie Kelly McGillis. But their love is torn asunder because Annie has not yet earned her wings on Earth; she must leave on a tour of duty and put in time inhabiting a human body. Mike is beside himself in despair, but the heavenly powers, in the form of Emmett Debra Winger, chain-smoking and sporting an orange crewcut like a ghostly Laurie Anderson, offer him a deal. Mike can return to Earth, but only on the stipulation that neither he nor Annie will remember each other. They then have thirty years in which to find one another again.

    Fantastic

    If you believe in soulmates, then this is the movie that brings that concept to life.. It is the best romance movie out there. It should be released on DVD.

    I hope this is Heaven!

    This is my all-time favorite romance movie. It keeps you hoping that the person you're with is the one for you...and that you've always ''known'' each other. If this is Heaven...have no fear!
