Amid scenic backdrops of the Midwestern countryside, this dramatic mystery offers an intriguing glimpse into the world of the Amish. Patty Duke gives a stellar performance as an Amish widow, and it's interesting to see a young Jennifer Garner in a small supporting role before she struck it big in Hollywood. But beyond that, the film is an important lesson of compassion and acceptance for different beliefs and cultures.
