The Last Sin Eater

Movie Summary

Director:
Michael Landon, Jr.
Released:
2007
Rating:
PG-13
Cadi (Liana Liberato), a 10-year-old girl in 1850s Appalachia, feels tremendous guilt over the death of her sister, and apparently her family blames her too. While visiting the grave of her beloved grandmother, Cadi sees a "sin eater," a person who can absolve sins. Though Cadi yearns for forgiveness, she realizes that the "sin eater" is false; instead she finds what she is looking for through Christianity.

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    The New York Times

    Handsomely produced, earnestly performed and 100 percent irony-free, The Last Sin Eater is religious art for mainstream consumption.

  • 50

    Variety Joe Leydon

    Michael Landon Jr.'s respectfully sincere but only fitfully involving film.

  • 50

    Washington Post Desson Thomson

    Clearly targeted at Christians looking to reaffirm their faith. Its chances of crossover success with the secular crowd seem remote, given the dramatic shortcomings.
