5.0 out of 5 stars Was a hit
This was a gift for my in-laws who are friends with some Amish families. We watched it together, and several times during the show they pointed out things they thought were quite authentic based on their experience. They really enjoyed it, and later that evening started investigating if there were more available.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as real as it should be.
The story line follows the book but likes to mess around with the timing of everything - which I don't overly appreciate.

Also, this is about the Amish - they don't call their parents by regular titles, last I checked - it just could have had more research put into the movie to make it more realistic.

Not a bad movie, just not great.

This review is from: Beverly Lewis' the Shunning (Sous-titres français) (DVD)
This is a really well done movie, similar enough to the book, but as the book is only one of three in a series, so this movie just starts the story. Hopefully there will be a movie following which will continue the story. Then I would put it up to five stars. A nice Amish story for those who like such.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Shunning, April 25 2014

This review is from: Beverly Lewis' the Shunning (Sous-titres français) (DVD)
I enjoyed the book, as I do all of Beverley Lewis' books, so much that I wanted to see if the movie measured up. It does. The story line, in the book, is much more complicated than what appears in the movie, however, the director keeps very close to the original plot. I actually bought this for our church library - it's the only one they didn't have - so many people will be able to enjoy it.

Book was better and the whole series best out of the bunch!
