For those with an aversion to such sentimentality, especially when associated with the spirit world, Vanessa Redgrave is still reason enough to see A Rumor of Angels.

There are times when A Rumor of Angels plays like an extended episode of Touched by an Angel -- a little too much dancing, a few too many weeping scenes -- but I liked its heart and its spirit.

The actors are fantastic. They are what makes it worth the trip to the theatre.

A spiritual exploration of sorts, offering a message of hope that resonates.

Denver should not get the first and last look at one of the most triumphant performances of Vanessa Redgrave's career. It deserves to be seen everywhere.

That death is merely a transition is a common tenet in the world's religions. This deeply spiritual film taps into the meaning and consolation in afterlife communications.

Its gentle, touching story creeps into your heart.
Gregory Weinkauf
New Times
January 31, 2002
It's a humble effort, but spiced with wry humor and genuine pathos, especially between Morgan and Redgrave.
Ed Gonzalez
Slant Magazine
January 28, 2002
Short-story quaint, touchingly mending a child's pain for his dead mother via communication with an old woman straight out of Eudora Welty.

A soft, overly familiar coming of age tale, though in small, eccentric role Vanessa Redgrave is good.

This cloying, voices-from-the-other-side story is hell.

The film's darker moments become smoothed over by an overwhelming need to tender inspirational tidings, especially in the last few cloying moments.

Given the fact that virtually no one is bound to show up at theatres for it, the project should have been made for the tube.

Long on twinkly-eyed close-ups and short on shame.

The actors don't inhabit their roles -- they're trapped by them, forced to change behavior in bizarre unjustified fashion and spout dialog that consists mostly of platitudes.
