In Resurrection, an unforgettable story of love and devotion, Ellen Burstyn delivers a tour-de-force performance as a woman who experiences clinical death and returns to life with the amazing ability to heal others. Attributing her powers to human love rather than divine intervention, she begins to aid the residents of her childhood town. After healing a zealous young farmer (Sam Shepard), she starts to fall in love with him. As their affair develops, he tries to make her confess that her powers come from God and not from within. Her refusal leads to a violent climax that will change the healer and all who touch her forever.

We are spirits with bodies. Our bodies die but our spirits live on. This woman died and came back to help others by the healing power of touch. There are healers out there in the world. BURSTYN is terrific as a woman opening up to life, love forgiveness, and the power to heal.
Sam Shepard is believable as the damaged son of a radical, crazed, old time preacher. HE and Ellen B. fall in love but
his harsh religious upbringing ruins his relationship with her. The last ten minutes of the movie are my favorite as they show BURSTYN
YEARS LATER as an old woman with a very interesting life. Do you want to feel good and be inspired? Okay then,
watch this film.
Beautifully and powerfully acted with a superb script, the film is truly unique and deserves better treatment and wider release than this 'region 1 only' copy. One of the best films I have ever seen with a final image you'll never forget . . .
Ellyn Burstyn was stunning in this movie. I watched the DVD last night with someone who'd never seen the film, and they were equally impressed. Too bad Hollywood seldom makes films of this quality anymore.
