Shiloh 2: Shiloh Season
This sequel to 1997’s Shiloh has 12-year-old Marty reaching out to Judd, the lonely, mean-hearted, previous owner of Shiloh, the cutest little beagle you’re likely to come across. While Judd, played by Scott Wilson, schemes to get the pooch back because he considers Shiloh to be the best hunting dog he ever had, young Marty discovers that it is not easy to win over someone who doesn’t acknowledge kindness.
Shiloh 2 has surprising depth for a boy-and-his-dog movie. Although the kindly grownups act a little too perfect, like Stepford folks, the film contains great life lessons and questions, including, “Can a person change?” Shiloh Season presents a loving family, the boy prays for his enemy, and little ones will learn that sometimes you have to be very patient when trying to win over the unlovable.
