Ellen Burstyn experiences the afterlife for a brief time after a car accident that kills her husband. As she begins her long process of physical healing, she discovers that she has the ability to heal physical infirmities. While most people simply accept her gift, her lover (Sam Shepard) becomes mentally unbalanced and dangerous because she does not place the healings within a religious context.

Amazingly well acted film with Ellen Burstyn giving what could be a career best performance. Part of the power of her performance and the film is that she portrays a very normal woman thrust by circumstance into an extraordinary situation. Her Edna is presented in small touches with a few chances to dazzle us thrown in. Usually when one performer is so strong the rest of the cast tends to be overshadowed, such is not the case here. Lois Smith, Roberts Blossom, Richard Farnsworth and Sam Shepard all create wonderfully realized characters but the absolute scene stealer is Eva Le Galliene as the grandmother. A legend of the Broadway stage it is a pity she did not start working in film regularly until old age. Her rendering of an old farm woman is a thing of beauty in the realness and truth she brings to her. Her interactions with Ellen Burstyn are lovely and heartbreaking. The story of being touched with special powers after a brush with death is intriguing but would be unmemorable without this cast who make it so compelling. The ending is perfect. Highly recommended.
