Leap of Faith

Year: 1992
Director: Richard Pearce

Summary: Fake faith healer Jonas Nightingale is stranded in a small town where he finds he can’t fool all of the people all of the time.

Times Watched: 1

My Experience: Fake faith healer? Is there another kind?

I think my parents rented this when I was 12 or 13. I remember really enjoying Steve Martin’s performance (which I often do in his dramatic roles). He was convincing without being a caricature. And it was fun to see the technology and tricks that these guys use to con the audience. But it never really goes beyond this and I remember feeling underwhelmed by the ending.
