Sons of Perdition follows three boys after they leave Colorado City. With limited educations and rarely a stable address, the obstacles are enormous. All the boys have big dreams - starting with the hope of attending high school - but what they want most is contact with their families. For one teen in the film, this means numerous attempts to help his fourteen-year-old sister escape before an arranged marriage.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Very little of it adds up to a movie."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Their valiant attempt to find themselves is stirring, and sometimes depressing, as they backslide into alcohol and drugs."
‑ Gerald Peary, Boston Phoenix
""Sons of Perdition" is a captivating testament, but the silence of the daughters is the real revelation."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"The FLDS exiles featured in Sons of Perdition fare better than you might expect and a "where are they now" coda provides more encouraging news."
‑ Sarah Boslaugh, Playback:stl
"What's here is compelling, if occasionally hard to follow."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"Less a definitive historical account of American polygamy than a study of a very particular strain of post-traumatic stress disorder."
‑ Nick Schager, House Next Door
