The Healer

(Australia, 2002)

Got off to an interesting start, but quickly became very soapy, overwritten and overacted. When it began to look like a Christian thing, a tale of a woman who regains her faith through a miracle, we bailed out. Maybe we were being unfair, but the fact is we just weren’t that interested. [Don’t you think there should be a separate section for faith-based movies? Or at least a warning label?]
