About the Movie

Based on the short story by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Steven Millhauser, The Sisterhood of Night is a story of friendship and loyalty set against the backdrop of a modern-day Salem witch trial. Shot on location in Kingston, NY, the film chronicles a group of girls who have slipped out of the world of social media into a mysterious world deep in the woods. The tale begins when Emily Parris exposes a secret society of teenage girls. Accusing them of committing sexually deviant acts, Emily’s allegations throw their small American town into the national media spotlight. The mystery deepens when each of the accused takes a vow of silence. What follows is a chronicle of three girls’ unique and provocative alternative to the loneliness of adolescence, revealing the tragedy and humor of teenage years changed forever by the Internet age.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Even with sections recalling both "The Crucible" and an "Afterschool Special," it still fashions a story that's fairly fresh and often absorbing. – Ken Jaworowski, New York Times, Apr 9, 2015

Fresh: It does offer an appreciably even-handed, non-judgmental panorama of teens and adults flailing their way toward a place of greater empathy and understanding ... – Justin Chang, Variety, Apr 15, 2015

Fresh: The film has an odd pace to it, relying on genre expectations to hurtle headlong into the story initially, but it ultimately ends up defying those expectations with its messages about online bullying, predatory media and more. – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times, Apr 9, 2015

Rotten: An adaptation of a Steven Millhauser short story, Sisterhood drags out to feature length a mystery that's best handled in just a couple pages. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Apr 7, 2015

The Sisterhood of Night Speaks to US ALL!!

The Sisterhood of Night is that rare gem geared towards teenage girls that shines so brightly that it appeals to a wider audience, transcends the conventions of its genre, and does not dovetail with mediocrity because the filmmaker has chosen to pander to the intended audience by supplying an oversimplified view of their plight. The Sisterhood of Night is a modern retailing of the Salem Witch Trials, unraveling in the world of social media. Once teenage girls view the Sisterhood of Night, they will become a part of the Sisterhood, as I would imagine they would see themselves in one, if not all of the young girls. An added benefit, which is why I recommend parents to watch this film as well, is that they will gain perspective and insight into the lives and experiences of this modern generation, hopefully sparking raw and unfiltered conversation. As an adult in my 30s, whose childhood was obviously void of Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat, I found myself moved by the unexpected emotional depth of this film because the pain inflicted on me by bullies, jealousy, and lies, was just as impactful in my day as if someone would have clicked “send” on their smart phone or laptop.

Work of Art

Very artistic and passionate portrayal of the challenging modern times we live, being a part of and coping with social media. This film does a nice job a bringing to light the unfortunate evil that can emerge from the use of it. It made me laugh, cry and think about how human communication and interpretation of situations are never clear cut.

Beautiful

I wasn’t sure if I would like this movie, but it really was beautiful.
