Movie Review: Heaven Is For Real – Enhance Family Bonding Through PLDT DSL’s Family-Sized Connection

We had the opportunity to watch Heaven is For Real sponsored by PLDT last week at the Resorts World Cinema. Online casino Ireland. ###

First, a word about our sponsor:



There are a million cute kids out there. And then, there is Diego Ledesma.

PLDT HOME DSL recently launched a brand new TV commercial on “Eat Bulaga” featuring a bright, handsome and witty young boy by the name Diego and how he stole the heart of many was unprecedented. The precocious little boy is a total show-stopper.

Following the success of its “Anna Banana” campaign with Derek S. Lorenzo and his family, PLDT HOME DSL brings us another family to show how important family values and strong connections are at home. They are the Ledesma family, and their claim to fame began with seven-year-old Diego, who has tens of thousands of fans on his advice column on Facebook, “Ask Diego”.

The Ledesmas are the perfect fit for the commercial because they are the ideal example of today’s young, urban family: tight-knit, enjoys doing things together online using multiple gadgets simultaneously to help one another out. That’s where PLDT HOME DSL’s limitless and reliable family-sized connection really comes in handy. This kind of strong connection helps keeps the family together, in more ways than one.

Some people initially raised their eyebrows at the thought of a child being on Facebook, but upon learning that values is paramount in the Ledesma household because his parents monitor the page constantly, Diego started getting so many questions on topics ranging on love, studies, and bullying, all the way to vacation and business ideas. Before he sees the questions, Paolo and Lara delete offensive content, and sometimes answer the more difficult questions themselves. Then they help him type out answers, especially when he asks about how to spell words. On occasion, Diego also gets ideas for answers from his Ate Trisha.

“Ask Diego” is fast becoming another iconic presentation from PLDT HOME DSL in the league of the multi-awarded “Anna Banana” campaign series in the last few years. The group’s focus on family values and connection through limitless sharing truly spell the difference.

“Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world. The film stars Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth … things he couldn’t possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.”

Before going into the cinema, we all met the charming Ledesma family. They took time to pose for pictures with some of their fans. Good thing that Diego was very cooperative and smiled his way through the dozens of photos taken with his fans.

Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed this inspiring movie. Thanks to PLDT and Icon Marketing for inviting us to watch this beautiful family movie. Especially touching was how the father, Pastor Todd Burpo, struggled with himself and finally reached his own conviction to believe in his son’s story of Heaven. I was very moved, as a mother who lost a baby through miscarriage, when Colton told his mom about meeting his sister in heaven. Now I see why it’s also important to name even those babies that you lose while inside your belly.

As a Christian who believes in Jesus Christ and heaven, I had some doubts also in how Colton was able to see the face of Jesus which was later drawn by another young girl in another country. But I also believe that God speaks to us in a way that we also understand, as long as our hearts are open to Him. So Colton seeing heaven the way he describes it, seeing members of his family that he has never seen before, seems to prove that he really was in heaven. In the end, the movie will speak to our hearts and our beliefs, if heaven is real. For me, it is real. I know it because it says so in the Bible. See John 3:13, Deuteronomy 30:12, Proverbs 30:4.

The quality of the movie itself was very good, at par with other blockbuster movies. The acting was great, the scenery is beautiful. With its message and cinema quality, I can honestly say that it is worth the money to watch this family movie.
