The Other Side of Heaven Theatrical Release December 14

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Excel Entertainment Group proudly announces the theatrical release of "The Other Side of Heaven." From the Academy Award-winning producer of "Schindler's List" and "Jurassic Park," comes "The Other Side of Heaven" -- a movie that captures the essence of a beautiful time and a beautiful people in a true adventure story that explores the heart of what makes life worth living. See the movie based on the real-life experiences of Elder John H. Groberg as chronicled in his book, "In the Eye of the Storm."

John Groberg (played by Christopher Gorham of "A Life Less Ordinary"), a farm kid from Idaho, crosses an ocean as a missionary to the remote and exotic Kingdom of Tonga during the 1950's. He leaves behind a loving family and the true love of his life, Jean Sabin (played by Anne Hathaway of "The Princess Diaries"). John must struggle to overcome language barriers, physical hardship and deep-rooted suspicion to earn the trust and love of the Tongan people he has come to serve. John Groberg's Tongan odyssey will change his life forever.

Be one of the first to see the film that made Larry King say, "This movie is just what America needs. I loved it!" Michael Medved raves that "The Other Side of Heaven" is "skillfully crafted, heart-felt and all-together refreshing."

Stop by today to view the theatrical trailer and read the early reviews!

The adventure comes to theaters in Utah on December 14. Coming soon to a theater near you. "The Other Side of Heaven" is rated PG by the MPAA.
