Synopsis from DVD Cover:
Best-selling author Francine Rivers' powerful novel is now an acclaimed film! Directed by Michael Landon Jr. and featuring an all-star cast, including Academy AwardŽ winner Louise Fletcher, this beautiful adaptation is a stunning look at the bonds of faith.

Cadi Forbes (Liana Liberato) is not only mourning the recent loss of her beloved grandmother, but she also feels responsible for the earlier death of her little sister. In her quest for redemption, Cadi seeks out the one man she feels can take away her sin - the Sin Eater (Peter Wingfield). But when she uncovers a dark secret about the mystical practice, it threatens to divide her family and her community. Ultimately, the young girl discovers the truth about absolution. Also starring Henry Thomas (E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial) and A.J. Buckley (CSI: NY), this penetrating drama delivers an emotional wallop even as it spreads its profound message about faith.

Quick Review:
Not being a religious person, it was difficult to understand the point of this film, since it is made by FoxFaith, the religious arm of 20th Century Fox. Fortunately, it was able to save the preaching till the end, and before that, the actual movie resembled M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village," in addition to being based on best-selling author Francine Rivers' novel. Seems like very little could go wrong.

The film revolves around a little girl, who seeks a man to take away her sins, and in the process learns the dark secrets of her community and the people in it.

It all starts out with a ritual that has been performed for a number of years, which requires a man to take the sins of the departed after their passing. This man is not to be touched, looked at, or spoken to, as the mere mentioning of his name casts evil upon the person. Little Cadi Forbes is intrigued by this man, called the Sin Eater, and seeks him out to take away her guilt of killing her younger sister.

At this point, the film is intriguing and suspenseful, but it all goes down-hill very quickly. The story begins to jump around, and begins introducing many other characters and sub-plots. Finally, the bible is mentioned, a lesson is learned and everyone lived happily ever after.

The characters' personalities varied; The tough leader of the community goes from killing mercilessly to crying over the people his father killed. Some of the characters are frozen with fear when talking about the Sin Eater, while others are more than happy to discuss him. The whole thing was incredibly inconsistent.

The bonus material is nothing to write home about. There is a featurette that discusses the entire film, and shows-off the beautiful locations. In addition, we get several deleted scenes, which could have easily been left in, since there were parts in the film that didn't make sense until I got the chance to see the deleted parts.

In Conclusion:
The film had so much potential, if it were to follow the original story, but unfortunately, the point is to teach/preach rather than entertain. With everything that has gone wrong, I was still fully intrigued, and if the last 30 minutes were to be ignored, I could even say that the film is decent.
