Trivia

Re: Stoning in Fulham County 1988. At the court opening the bailiff cries, "Oh, yes; oh, yes" which should be O-yay, O-yay.This exclamation goes back to the time when French was used in court. It is derived from Ouiir (French for 'to hear'). A more accurate translation would be "Hear ye! Hear ye!" O-yay is still used by the U.S. Supreme Court. Scriptwriters, take note. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the movie, married men are seen with short and clean cut beards. Once a man marries, he is forbidden to trim or cut his beard. An Amish mans beard would be longer than those seen and would not be neat. (Prior to marriage, a man must shave his face clean.) Also, Amish women are never allowed to cut their hair. See more »

Uncaring thugs attack those who are different
7 March 2002 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

A small town is thrown into turmoil when four youths go on trial for a heinous crime against a neighboring Amish family. Many of the townspeople felt harassing the Amish for being different was merely harmless sport, but an idealistic young prosecutor brought charges for a hateful, intolerant act. The only witness against the criminals was a 7 year old girl whose father refused her entry into the trial on religious grounds which undermined almost all of the prosecutor's efforts at an indictment. Good film showing the stupidity of those with a superior attitude.
