Storyline Heading
After the abduction and assumed death of his youngest daughter, Missy, he receives a letter and has the suspicion it's from God asking him to return to The Shack where she may have been murdered. After contemplating it, he leaves his home to go to The Shack for the first time since Missy's accident and encounters what will change his life forever.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is a faith-centered drama, but unlike a lot of similarly themed films, it features a name cast led by Sam Worthington and Octavia Spencer, and it is not too forceful in its message--thus giving it appeal beyond the usual core Christian audiences. While there is nothing in the way of language, and most families will find this to be safe viewing, there is some mature and downbeat subject matter involving the death of a child, as well as some brief moments of non-graphic but disturbing violence.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average "The Shack" wants to be a sincere exploration of faith and forgiveness, but somehow manages to be both too innocuous and too off-putting for its own good. For all of the pontificating on display, there is precious little in the way of a coherent narrative for anyone who does not already buy into "The Shack'"s way of thinking.
