Amish Grace Reviews
Apparently, a man grief stricken over the loss of his baby daughter decided to go to the Amish schoolhouse and shoot all the females before killing himself.
The story revolves around the Amish community's ability to forgive the murderer and their kindness towards his widow.
Although, the widow had no prior knowledge of her husband's actions, I can see how easy it would be to hate him and channel their anger towards her over the situation.
The only thing that confused me (and wasn't explained in the movie) was how they could forgive the murderer but the main character's sister was being shunned for falling in love with an Englishman.
I still don't understand THAT logic but the movie definitely made me re-examine my priorities and marvel at the power of forgiveness.
I wish I had there strength.
A tear jerker that is worth watching. If is sensitively told and this is conveyed in the direction.
Anyway...the film isn't a particularly good one. Pretty cheap production, and typical of a straight-to-TV movie. Simply okay. Informative and touching, but not deep enough or believable enough. Just facts with a little drama sprinkle - nothing special.
