Hannah Moore knew real life. The daily fight to build an existence on her own terms sustained Hannah and held at bay the grief of being used as a plaything first by her father and then by a succession of boys and men. As far as Hannah knew, this world offers no handouts. Her struggle to find work that wouldn't be affected by a previous stint in prison began to seem an impossible dream. At the same time a nearby church was bitterly divided by a proposal to provide practical assistance and shelter to homeless women. The Touch doesn't sugar-coat the attitudes of those opposed to the project or the difficulties faced during the process of establishing and administering the shelter. Hannah's fighting spirit wouldn't entertain the idea of seeking help at such a place, but after losing hope and trying to finish herself off with a concoction of pills and vodka, Hannah is referred by social services to the church's shelter.

Heartwarming film.
11 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

Firstly, this movie isn't really religious propaganda. What I saw was very little to do with religion and more to do with a woman simply overcoming one of the hardest lifestyles known to all of North America.

It is about the struggles of Hannah, and the people who helped her. It hasn't made me believe, but strengthened my belief; that people can come together and work to help people in need and assist them regardless of the cost whatever it may be (monetary, stress, etc).

This movie could possibly motivate others to help people in need. I feel while it might not be a must-see movie; its inspirational.

Some of the acting is questionable, and some of the acting is remarkable.

The movie is overall, excellent. It is a wonderful blend of unpredictable dramatics. The casting couldn't have been better. Enjoy this movie, I know I sure did.
