Watch the trailer.
From the website:Before she succumbs to cancer, the dying wish of Laura Mayfield-Bennett is to be reunited with the daughter she never knew. Unfortunately, that daughter, Katie Lapp, is a member of the Amish order. Katie is about to be married, but uneasy about the path ahead. Now she discovers the secret her parents have kept from her: she's adopted.
The film is based on the celebrated first novel of the best-selling "The Heritage of Lancaster County" book series from author Beverly Lewis. Stars Danielle Panabaker & Sherry Stringfield.
I absolutely love Beverly Lewis. Truly love everything she writes. Pretty sure I have read them all. So I was super excited to see that "The Shunning" had been made into a movie. And even more excited when I had the chance to receive it for review.
I finally had a chance to sit down and watch it tonight. And it was such a moving story. A girl caught between two worlds. Parents struggling to know what is right when things go wrong. Reminders of what really matters. A story of family and values and faith.
I also have a love for the Amish. Reading about them, watching movies about them, visiting Amish country. So, that made the movie even more interesting for me.
My only complaint - I wish the story had continued on a little farther. It ended a little abruptly, leaving me with questions of what happens next. :)
