|From Elmore Leonard, the author of Get Shorty, comes this "devilishly unpredictable, wonderfully wicked tale" (American Movie Classics) that proves that a good miracle can be a great thing...especially when you have the merchandising rights.|
Emerging from years of seclusion, Juvenal (Skeet Ulrich) goes to work in an L.A. clinic...and casually begins healing the sick with just a touch of his hands. To the laid-back Juvenal, his abilities are no big deal. But to the hustlers who want to turn him into a superstar, he's a walking, talking miracle!
From Bill Hill (Christopher Walken), a washed-up evangelist with very little integrity, to August Murray (Tom Arnold), a gun-toting religious fanatic with very little intelligence, Juvenal is a heaven-sent commodity and the answer to their prayers. But when Juvenal falls for Hill's attractive assistant (Bridget Fonda), he no longer feels like touching everyone else in town! And suddenly his bogus "business partners" are forced to wake up and face reality: their golden boy could be slipping through their fingers...
With a terrific supporting cast that includes Gina Gershon, Lolita Davidovich, Paul Mazursky, and Janeane Garofalo, Touch is a sharp, offbeat comedy and "one pleased smile from start to finish" (Los Angeles Times).
