Out on a Limb ★★ 1987

MacLaine plays herself in this miniseries based on her best-selling book by the same name. In the midst of love affairs with an unnamed British politician and a mysterious teacher, she learns about her past, present, and future through meditation and her beliefs in reincarnation. Features footage of psychics performing spiritual channeling. Beautiful scenery filmed on location in California, Hong Kong, London, Hawaii, Sweden, and Peru, but the acting is just average, and the movie is slow in some parts. 160m/C VHS . Shirley MacLaine, Charles Dance, John Heard, Anne Jackson, Jerry Orbach; D: Robert Butler. TV
