Sin Eater is the perfect movie for the family who believes in God. It shows just how much power one person truly has in leading others to God.

Soul-stirring and captivating movie for all ages
Leslie Matthews | USA | 04/16/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

""The Last Sin Eater" was beautifully done and captures the heart of anyone who watches this film. The story focuses on a young girl Cadi Forbes who is tormented by the grief of her sister's death; she feels she is to blame for this tragedy and only wants the love of her family, especially her mother. Her quest to find forgiveness leads her to the ultimate truth and redemption. The relationships between the characters are endearing and the story moves beautifully along. The children tug at your heart the entire film and Henry Thomas who plays the "Man of God" delivers a brilliant performance and will bring tears to your eyes. Even though there are some intense scences, this is a film for the whole family.
Francine Rivers was thrilled with this movie directed by Michael Landon Jr. and I can see why. This movie will touch the whole family and it is a film I could watch over and over again. We need more Christian films like this one!"
Faith & truth against superstition, fear & deception
z hayes | TX | 05/28/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At heart this is a tale of faith, and how a community learns to cast away their fear, superstitions and past sins & redeem themselves. The lead character is young Cadi Forbes [played brilliantly by Liana Liberato]who carries a heavy burden of guilt as she feels responsible for her younger sister's death. At her grandmother's funeral, she looks upon the 'sin-eater', a person chosen by the community to lead a life of isolation, only to appear at funerals and 'consume' the sins of the dead so that they may rest in peace. Intent upon having her own sins absolved, Cadi sets out on a journey of hope, and tries to find the sin eater. Not only does she find him, but discovers that the community is not completely clear of conscience themselves, and it takes a man of faith to make her and the rest see the truth. The acting in this movie is above average...young Liana Liberato is able to convincingly evoke feelings of fear, guilt and hope, and the sin eater himself is adept at portraying his hopeless situation. The villain of the movie is played by Stuart Finlay Mclennan [who was the doctor in Christy] and he does a good job of playing an ignorant & power crazy maniac. There are also good supporting roles such as Thomas Howell as the preacher. The cinematography is lush and evokes the captivating beauty of the mountains, and the costumes are beautiful [though a bit too elaborate for people eking out a meager living in the mountains]. All in all, a great family movie [though young kids may find some of the scenes frightening], and a movie with solid values to impart."
It is what it is.

"This movie is exactly what I suspect it is intended to be - a story of redemption and grace. Those looking for ultra sophistication, or those offended by a film that unashamedly embraces our sin condition and how it affects us will probably not like this film. Those who find a positive treatment of these subjects relevant will love it.

On another note, I am married to a woman whose family immigrated from Wales in the 1800's and who lived (and many still do) in the foothills of the Appalachians. This movie captures some of the flavor of that culture. I highly recommend this movie as long as you remember - it is what it is.
