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 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.

I gave it 4 stars because I thought the story, the acting and the production were well done.
I appreciated the respect that it showed to the Amish people. It showed the shunning for what it is. It is part of their belief system and its roots are grounded in love and I felt that came through in the film. To me it is a truly beautiful story. Secrets can cause very deep hurts, the secret in this story has so many levels that makes it sad, because there is no right answer, you just have to do the best you can with the situation.

I really enjoyed this movie. I love books and movies about the Amish people they are fascinating. I realized after that I had already seen the movie but it was still good.
