Audience Reviews for The Shunning

Nice Michael Landon Jr. movie...very Little House on the Prairie style. Not for everyone, I am quite sure. Very much chick flickish...

Super Reviewer


This film has no real depth and really says nothing about the Amish culture.

Sarah Prisbylla

Super Reviewer


A view of the Amish community and some of their customs. Danielle Panabaker is marvelous as Katie, the young Amish lady who is struggling with an arranged wedding quickly approaching and feelings of not belonging in her head. Touching and tear evoking (at least for my wife). Good family drama.
