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

Cute, but facts about Amish are wrong
20 July 2014 | by DmagelectricSee all my reviews

This movie is cute but some things about the Amish in the movie are incorrect. First of all the Amish in the movie spoke with no Dutch accent . Also the Amish do ride in cars , they are just not allowed to own or drive them. The Amish do not have a church building they worship at one another's homes. The amsh do not marry in the summer , they marry in the fall. Amish are not shunned unless they have already been baptized and then leave, if they have not been baptized and leave they are not shunned with the hopes of them coming back to be baptized. The story was cute though. Just not accurate. Why wouldn't the actors have a Dutch accent? It was kind of silly listening to them speak English in Amish clothing.
