THERE IS A LINE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH. EDNA MCCAULEY CROSSED OVER THAT LINE AND CAME BACK. NOW NO ONE SHE TOUCHES WILL EVER BE THE SAME.
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.
On release the film received two Oscar nominations for Best Actress (Ellen Burstyn) and Best Supporting Actress (Eva Le Gallienne).
Starring Ellen Burstyn, Sam Shepard, Richard Farnsworth, Roberts Blossom, Eva Le Gallienne
