Kate Hudson vehicle "A Little Bit of Heaven" has gone to Millennium Entertainment for North American distribution through "a multitude of platforms" (including VOD April 3, and a theatrical release starting May 4). Directed by Nicole Kassell ("The Woodsman," 2004), the romantic comedy also stars Kathy Bates, Whoopi Goldberg, Gael Garcia Bernal, Lucy Punch, Rosemarie DeWitt, Romany Malco, Steven Weber and Treat Williams. Gren Wells wrote the script.
Here's the synopsis (we also found a trailer, below, which tells the entire story):
A Little Bit of Heaven is a romantic story set in New Orleans about an irreverent young woman who unexpectedly falls in love with her doctor. Marley Corbett (Hudson) is young, beautiful, and wildly funny, but she’s afraid of opening herself up to true love and commitment. Though she uses her humor to prevent matters from getting serious, a life-changing visit to her doctor (Bernal) sends both of them on an eye-opening adventure of mutual discovery, leading to revelations neither thought possible.
