This would be an ideal movie for parents and children to see together, and talk about afterward. Shiloh, like all great family films, deals with real issues in real ways.

Book-based dog tale has some emotional intensity.

November 22, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This is the rare sort of family movie that actually strives to engage its audience.

August 21, 2006 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Excellent family drama that celebrates not only a young boy's deep love for a dog but the need to stand up for what you believe in no matter what.

There's only so many scenes of a boy being licked in the face by a dog that one can take.

Audience Reviews for Shiloh

This film is about a boy who finds a dog who is mistreated by its owner. Marty keeps the dog without telling one that he has the boy until he figure out what to do. Mart would do any thing to save this dog. Shiloh has a really good plot and good acting. This film made me cry at the end. If u likes a dog drama or a tearjerker, you should give this film a try.
