Lancaster, Pennsyvania Amish model boy Samual is devoted to his arranged betrothed, Hannah Yoder, who reaches 18 and hence joins a few peers, like Isaac, on Rumspringa, the traditional taste of wicked life outside, in this case in LA. She's the only one who doesn't seem to enjoy the trappings of modern free youth and avoids parties, but is charmed by Josh, a more mature young intellectual, who shows her the simple joys of modernity. They become lovers, but unlike Isaac, she doesn't simply stay behind but insists to part properly with her family and Samual. Once home, she finds it too hard, so after weeks, during which only Samual finds out she's pregnant and offers to pretend being the father, Josh comes demand a decision. Written by KGF Vissers

No more than 15 minutes ...
10 November 2014 | by PhilzenSee all my reviews

The inaccuracies in this movie alone made me want to turn it off after the first 15 minutes. From Amish holding church in a dedicated building (they worship in their homes) to the girls having bangs cut in their hair, wearing white aprons (only on Sunday and special occasions), down to the wrong buggies and colors (they are gray in Lancaster County)and their perfect American speech (minus the "dutch" accent) ... the whole thing made me feel silly just watching it. Also a stretch that Amish kids would spend their Rumspringa time in Los Angeles ... really? I have been exposed to the Amish my entire life ... this movie is nothing but a "fairy tale" ...
