Movie Info

Ellen Burstyn plays Edna McCauley, the wife of a man (Jeffrey DeMunn) who is killed in an auto crash. Edna herself survives, but not before enduring an "out of body" experience. Crippled in the accident, Edna heads to her hometown in Kansas to recuperate. There she discovers that she has the power to heal people, presumably a byproduct of her brief trip into the beyond. She accepts her gift, but resists the notion that she has been blessed with divine powers. On the other hand, her young lover

This rural tale is beuatifully acted by Ellen Burstyn and other, but its narrative is incoherent, trying to fuse new feminist ideas with sentimental conventions about the healing power of love.

Resurrection is an extraordinary film about a healer and the power of love.

Audience Reviews for Resurrection

one of ellen burstyn's very best performances and an interesting premise. Eva Le Gallienne does a beautiful job as the grandmother.

Super Reviewer

A rural not so tall tale told with remarkable performances by Ellen Burstyn and her literally worshiping husband Sam Shepard. Very compelling.

    1. Edna McCauley: Honey, if there's anything holy here, it's just the simple holiness of love, thats all. Believe me, I'm not the Holy Ghost. And I'm not exactly the Virgin Mary, either.
