Picks and Pans Review: Shiloh
Michael Moriarty, Blake Heron
An ingratiatingly old-fashioned kids' movie about a boy and his dog, Shiloh is based on Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's 1992 Newbery Medal-winning novel. It chronicles the fight of an 11-year-old boy (Heron) to keep a puppy after the dog runs away from its abusive owner, a hunter (Scott Wilson). Shiloh debates such big issues as what ownership really means and whether lying is ever justified. It does so without excessive preaching and with nicely nuanced work by Moriarty and Ann Dowd as the boy's parents and by Wilson. (PG)
