A Little Trip To Heaven (2005) -* * *
Directed By: Baltasar Kormákur
Starring: Forest Whitaker, Julia Stiles, and Peter Coyote
A Little Trip To Heaven is a well-acted drama.
The Plot: Abe Holt (Whitaker) is an insurance investigator who is sent to a small town to find out about a car accident. He meets Isolde (Stiles) and realizes that the truth could also be a scam.
Forest Whitaker is excellent in the role. He brings a lot of sadness and humility to it. His accent, while unnecessary, works for him. Julia Stiles also does a good job, and Peter Coyote, as Holt's boss, is always worth watching. The climax\ending doesn't work but it could have ended worse.
A Little Trip To Heaven is definitely a hidden gem that's being thrown onto the video market. It works well on the small screen however.
