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.

  • The lovely shots of Appalachian vistas are spoiled by cheesy special effects straight from the 1960s Chroma-Key era. show more

  • The voice-over narration is obvious, but overall the message is integrated into an unusual story that's enhanced by Liberato's and Fulton's appealing performances as the youngsters who see through their elders' lies and help right a terrible wrong. show more

  • Folks wanting to hear the usual New Testament message will be pleased; others may feel that the tension dissolves in homilies and wish the main character weren't led around by a blonde-haired little angel in a white dress. show more
