Movie Info

The Healer is a story about a gambling, womanizing bankrupt electrical repairman named Alex Bailey (Oliver Jackson Cohen) who is traumatized by the death of his twin brother. His distant uncle Raymond Heacock (Jonathan Pryce) offers to absolve his debts under the condition that he agrees to live with him in Halifax, Nova Scotia. With no alternatives, Alec accepts and embarks on a life-changing journey as his uncle reveals that he comes from a long-time family of healers with the gift of being able to heal all those who are diseased. Trying to understand this gift and the new reality that it offers Alec meets Cecilia (Camilla Luddington), a beauty and local veterinarian, and a teenage girl Abigail (Kaitlyn Bernard) with terminal cancer who unexpectedly show him the way.

A film stumbling again and again while marking the notes of comedy, fantasy and drama with sound clichés. [Full review in Spanish]

Aug 15, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Good for the social cause but a horror as a film. [Full review in Spanish]

Aug 15, 2017 | Full Review…

A film with a premise without any interest, unthinking spirituality and a staging below the very poor. [Full review in Spanish]
