The Last Sin Eater: Somehow when I watched this I missed the word Last. Had I picked up on this, maybe I could have better guessed the ending. However if I had guessed the ending, maybe I wouldn’t have enjoyed the movie so much. This is about a rural community with lots of superstition and part of this is that they have a sin eater who will hear everyone’s confession before they day and take upon himself their sins. This movie is about a girl, who figures she has committed a grievous sin, and it is haunting her. She seeks out the sin eater to bless her during the day. Overlayed with this, is a Christian minister who has come to preach.
The people are against any outsiders, but his arrival causes a great change in the community. My only complaint is the actors used such a thick accent "sin eater" sounded like somebody's name and it wasn't until later I realized what they were saying. Directed by Michael Landon Jr. and features Liana LIberato.
