A beautiful true story of 'healing'. The movie is very well done.
10 October 1999 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

"A Touch of Hope" is a made-for-TV movie first shown 10/10/99 on NBC in the USA. There was a time when "made-for-TV" meant 'poor movie', but not anymore.

Although there was some dramatization, the movie is based on a real person who still today, and with his wife, works within the medical community. Although the word "God" is never mentioned, it is clear from the dialog that the healing power was given by a higher power. For most of us, that means "God".

This is a very uplifting story, well-cast and well-acted. Next time it comes on TV, please watch it. You owe it to yourself.
