Critic Reviews for The Confession

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

This movie posses slightly more edge than the network's standard fare, and a solid tandem in Katie Leclerc and Sherry Stringfield as its leads. It's also enough of a stand-alone story one needn't have thrilled to part one to join the buggy ride.

Audience Reviews for The Confession


A nice follow-up to The Shunning, these movies are based on books by Beverly Lewis. While I preferred Danielle Panabaker in the role of Katie, I warmed up to Katie Leclerc rather quickly. Sherry Stringfield is fabulous. The story is one of betrayal and deceit, and teaching an Amish woman that Englishers for the most part are not trustworthy. Enjoyed it.

When making a sequel that is supposed to happen just a few months after the events of the first movie, please cast the same lead actress. Once I got over the extremely different character of Katie Lapp I was still not impressed with this story. Obviously there will be another movie, but I am not sure that I care to continue with this contrived story any longer.
