  • Based on a novel by Elmore Leonard, TOUCH chronicles a young former Franciscan monk's return to Los Angeles following years spent in a remote jungle monastery. Charlie Lawson--or Juvenal (Skeet Ulrich), as he is known--takes a job in a rehab center, where he discovers stigmata on his palms and a gift for healing when he restores a blind woman's sight. As word of his miracles gets out, con man Bill Hill (Christopher Walken) sees money in these divine occurrences and sends promoter pal Lynn Faulkner (Bridget Fonda) to infiltrate Juvenal's world and find out if he's authentic. In true farcical style, she falls for him in the process. What follows are many slightly zany attempts to capture Juvenal and his powers by a religious zealot and two sharklike reporters. Surprisingly slick and light, TOUCH (based on the novel by Elmore Leonard) is highlighted by a knockout supporting cast and is filled with cool dialogue and enhanced by hip production design. Director Paul Schrader once again looks at religion in the context of the modern world--this time with a sense of humor--in this fun and original film.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...TOUCH has its pleasures. Gina Gershon's barracuda of a chat-show hostess is spot-on..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...A bemused gloss on the varieties of religious experience, it knows enough to take its time, making sure we enjoy ourselves along the way..."
