Taken as Is, Beautiful and Enjoyable
30 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

I haven't read the book, or can I testify to accuracy of place, clothing, habits, or accents. However, as a movie, I was thoroughly entranced by everything about this production. I thought that all the actors inhabited their characters with exquisite taste, delicacy, restraint, and heart. To me, the accents rolled off their tongues with ease and never felt forced. The casting for everyone felt perfect. Having seen other Danielle Panabaker movies, I feel this is her best one. I completely believed that an Amish girl could be this beautiful, spiritual, natural, loyal, and torn. She lived next door to me when she was a toddler/pre-schooler, and I have memories of her at my front door, and the feeling that she had the most arresting eyes and prettiest lips that I had ever seen on a child. She still looks the same and her face is especially expressive in this role. I'd highly recommend this movie. It will leave you with a warm feeling and you will not feel like you wasted an hour and a half of your life as do so many movies.
