MANNA FROM HEAVEN
"CRITICS PICK! Two feel-good hours of old-timey family entertainment… A much-needed reprieve from the angst, irony and mean-spiritedness that is endemic to modern cinema."
- Natalie Hopkinson, Washington Post
"A great little movie it is. Dig this cast…Several Oscar winners and nominees and even a Tony citation are in this amazing group. You’ll be hearing more about the Burtons!"
- Liz Smith, New York Post
"This movie has it all: a good plot, great characters and performances, hilarious moments, and genuinely touching personal moments…I’m generally pretty cynical, but I still really enjoyed this movie. I wish more good family movies like this came along."
- Ain't It Cool News
"A gem of a movie that the big Hollywood studios only wish they would get."
- Michael Moore, Delaware Gazette

"MANNA FROM HEAVEN is an entertainment blessing… A story of personal relationships and interactions involving some of funniest and most entertaining characters you will ever meet, human goodness, kindness, faithfulness, and, most of all, the miraculous wonder of dreaming and achieving those dreams."
- Gary Groman, BRANSON COURIER
"A truly original comedy, which will have the whole family laughing…. Delightful feel good comedy…[that] explores in a delightful yet insightful way the dynamics of the ‘modern family’…This movie has witty and thought provoking dialogue…I recommend [Manna From Heaven] as one…to raise the spirits."
- Synapsis Digital Magazine
"It is the perfect film for this moment in history. You’ll walk out of the film soaring."
- U.S. Congress Representative Karen McCarthy (D-MO)
"We don’t have enough of these movies. It says something wonderful about family."
- Senator Charles E. Schumer (D-NY)
MANNA FROM HEAVEN is a lighthearted comedic fable about what happens when you get a “gift from God” (a financial windfall), but many years later you find out it was a just a loan — and it’s due immediately. A feel-good film with a star-studded ensemble cast, MANNA is a delightful and refreshing comedy.
