"You're better off not digging up old graves!"
13 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite a few vague spots--Katie's fantasy bedroom (or at least I assume that's what it is) and her sudden trip to the city to buy "fancy," "English" clothing--THE SHUNNING entails a convincing and engaging story about crises of faith and other matters within the Old Amish Order. A made-for-TV movie with a Christian slant--though nothing that's just preachily in-yer-face--it is, of course, totally clean: No sex, serious violence, or even a single mild curse word. Still, this film is very much in the real world and gives an intriguing view of Amish life. Danielle Panabaker gives a memorable performance as Katie Lapp; ditto for those who play the various other Amish characters. Professionally done filming that provides some excellent scenery of the Pennsylvania Dutch countryside. The flashbacks to Katie with her childhood friend and would-be husband Daniel are quite arresting. THE SHUNNING is an interesting, moving, and poignant experience.

NOTE: I'm not religious in the formal, traditional sense, and I read and watch a lot of gritty, gross, nasty stuff. Yet, I still enjoyed THE SHUNNING, which hopefully says something about the quality of this film.
