I just watched this movie last night. Very well done, great acting. And there were no 'slow' areas in this movie - you will be eager & watchful to see what is happening next. Goes very well after "The Shunning" but you don't have to have read the books or watched the 1st movie The Shunning to greatly enjoy this movie. This movie actually is more inline with the book with a few changes or a more indepth explanation of things - but none of that distracts from its theme.
It does get rather emotional -especially in the end & I cried but that is to be expected.
-- I am looking forward to the 3rd book in a movie "The Reckoning"
-- I've read some reviews that show people don't know the Michael Landon Jr is NOT the former Little Joe on Bonanza - that was . Jr's father. And Katie Leclerc does have a hearing disability But did not know this while growing up and speaks as well as the rest of us.moreless
