Storyline

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

The writers know the Amish are real, right?
21 July 2014 | by emaureenSee all my reviews

The story opens with the river baptism of short-haired Amish teens wearing white pajamas and goes downhill from there.

It seems as though the writers grabbed bits and pieces from various religions - or bad movies about various religions - and smushed them together. There's a church with fixed pews, men and women sitting together and singing "Onward Christian Soldiers".

And shunning ... this may be imposed by the church against those who violate the promises made when they are baptized. No baptism, no shunning.

I'd love to know where the money came for this trip from Pennsyvania to LA - air fare, very nice accommodations with pool, apparently unlimited spending money.

All in all, a really bad film. To be avoided except as a giggle.
