I guess I am at a disadvantage, since I live in the area where this movie is supposed to take place. Plus, I'm surrounded by Amish farms on three sides of my house, and I know a fair amount about their culture.
This movie shows caricatures of what Amish people are like, not the reality. They don't dress right, the buggies are all wrong, the accents are wrong, and more. I could go on and on about all the things misrepresented here. Heck, they couldn't even pronounce the name of the city "Lancaster" correctly; they used the west coast version, not the pronunciation used in Pennsylvania.
I could probably get past all that if the plot were better. But the part with the guy providing whiskey to two of the Amish was unnecessary. It was a way to hide the rest of the bad writing. As for the main plot, eh, boring, and a variation on a theme we've seen too many times.
I'm shocked at the overall rating this movie got. Even without the cultural errors, this is by far one of the lesser Lifetime efforts.
Amish wife and mother Annie's life turns upside down after her husband leaves to live among "normal Americans," however, things turn more dire when he returns, seeking custody of their son by any means necessary.
