nice movie, almost totally inaccurate depiction
11 May 2009
It's not a bad movie, and is rather touching. Definitely sends the 'right' message for young people and families.

I live in Lancaster, PA. This movie is so full of inaccuracies about the Amish that I can't give it a full recommendation. Please don't watch this and assume you've learned about the Amish and their way of life.

We laughed when we heard the Amish 'elder' speaking--Amish don't have German accents! And Amish bonnets don't look like that. I could go on.

Suffice to say, the Amish aren't at all as innocent of our way of life as we'd like to believe them to be.
