As one can tell from my previous blog reviews, I love heart-felt movies that are family friendly. When I watch a movie, I would like to be moved, in a positive way. I'm happy to tell my readers about another one of those great movies. Hallmark has a reputation for reliable and quality family-friendly tv programs and movies. Most recently they released The Shunning. Here is a synopsis:
"Before she succumbs to cancer, the dying wish of Laura Mayfield-Bennett is to be reunited with the daughter she never knew. Unfortunately, that daughter, Katie Lapp, is a member of the Amish order. Katie is about to be married, but uneasy about the path ahead. Now she discovers the secret her parents have kept from her: she's adopted. The film is based on the celebrated first novel of the best-selling "The Heritage of Lancaster County" book series from author Beverly Lewis. Stars Danielle Panabaker & Sherry Stringfield."
The author, Beverly Lewis, was born in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country and is The New York Times bestselling author of more than eighty books. Her stories have been published in eleven languages worldwide. A keen interest in her mother's Plain heritage has inspired Lewis to write many Amish-related novels, beginning with "The Shunning," which has sold more than one million copies. In 2007, Lewis' "The Brethren" was honored with a Christy Award. The acting in this movie is fabulous as well as the story-line. For a story about an Amish family, it is intriguing and held my attention. The plot and acting was very believable and it was interesting to have a peek into the Amish culture. There were intense moments, moments of pure innocence, touching moments, moments that provoked sympathy, and moments of celebration. To summarize, it was a dynamic, quality movie which I highly enjoyed and would recommend to anybody.
