This is a movie I highly recommend. We saw it when it came out in the theaters in early 2007, and then purchased the DVD when it was released. A couple days ago we sat down to watch the movie for the first time in at least a year.
Let me tell you about the story from the DVD back:
Cadi Forbes 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. 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.
This story will tug at the heart-strings, and has some powerful messages, not the least of which is the Gospel, which overtakes all the Celtic superstition of the people of the story.
If you haven’t seen this movie yet, be sure you put it on your list of things to do!
