User Reviews: We attempted watching this but initially could not finish it due to the obvious errors in portraying the Amish. I could not get past the full face of makeup used on the main character, lack of accent, mannerisms, cultural
adherence of an Amish woman. Her over assertiveness for an Amish woman in the beginning was too much. We turned it off. However, I decided I would finish it today. Again storyline was interesting but lacked the authenticity it needed. Especially again, when the main character wore a red dress, an untied bonnet and her mascara smeared when crying after waking up from a nightmare. Speaking as a mother her assertiveness later in the movie depicted how she changed to protect herself and son is understandable but the actress made her too strong in the beginning where her whole character was unbelievable. I have finished it but have reservations about any research being done regarding the Amish, the roles and personas of the females and males both were inaccurate and embarrassingly ignorant of the culture.
