“I’ve been angry for so long I forgot what it’s like to believe in miracles.”
Synopsis: A mischievous 8-year-old runaway takes it upon herself to repair the once intimate marriage between a romantic artist and his business-absorbed wife who are on the verge of a divorce.
A star falls from heaven to answer a confused prayer between a husband and wife. The star lands in a tree outside the Poet’s Walk, the place of business owned by Billy and Maire Taylor. But is it really a star?
Billy (Christian Kane) comes to the office because he was served divorce papers while decorating the family home; where he alone resides. Only to get into a heated debate about the issue and upon relinquishing to sign those papers, the office window suddenly opens and all the papers fly out the window. As he stands there in total confusion his wife walks in and accuses him of the crime.
Later that evening we see an ominous being with a cane walking through the city that seems to be looking for that fallen star.
The next day, Maire (Marley Shelton) comes by the house with new divorce papers, but nobody seems to be at home. She knocks and knocks, but no one answers. As she walks away, suddenly the door comes ajar. She goes through the house and finds Billy getting out of the shower. After signing the divorce papers a second time, coffee is spilled on them to which Billy insists if that wasn’t a sign he didn’t know what was. Right then a little girl comes out of nowhere asking if they had any Silk because she is lactose intolerant. They have no idea who she is or where she comes from, but she is hiding from someone when the UPS man shows up with her delivery.
Her name is Taylor (Mallory James Mahoney) and she tells them she ran away from heaven to see what it would be like to have parents—something she’d never experienced before.
Who or what is Taylor? Who is she hiding from? Will Billy and Maire get back together? Who is that ominous being? I gave away one spoiler already. You will just have to watch the movie to find out the rest.
Heaven Sent was originally released in 2016, is 91 min, rated TV-PG, and can be seen on Amazon Prime Video and Vudu for .99.

This movie fits right in with the holiday season, but it’s not your ordinary Christmas script. Sure there are ornamental moments, but all in all very thought engaging. Veteran actors Kane and Sheldon perform their roles well. But it was Mallory James Mahoney who was the centerpiece of this story and carried the weight of it and performed flawlessly. Although there is some revelation early on in this film other components in the plot have unexpected twists and a surprise ending you just will not see coming. But it will certainly make you think and is well worth the watch.
