Resurrection Reviews

Though both Ellen Burstyn and noted stage actress Eva Le Gallienne received Oscar nominations for their excellent work, RESURRECTION was a box-office dud. Burstyn is nearly killed in an auto accident that takes her husband's life. When she returns home to recover she discovers she has the power to heal others. Her father, Roberts Blossom, is incredulous, while Sam Shepard, a preacher's son with whom she becomes sexually involved, believes she has been touched by God. Though Daniel Petrie's direction of this multiple-handkerchief film is solid and the performances are strong, RESURRECTION never really catches fire.
