An offence to the Amish
| Original Score: 0/5

Weir, an Australian filming in this country for the first time, has succumbed to blandness.
May 20, 2003
It's pretty to look at and it contains a number of good performances, but there is something exhausting about its neat balancing of opposing manners and values.
October 23, 2004
Harrison Ford has never given a better performance in a movie.

Playing John Book allowed viewers the opportunity to see Ford the actor instead of Ford the action/adventure icon. It is one of the few times he has been given the opportunity to play in a straight drama.

Fish-out-of-water stories were very popular for a while in the 1980s, but none had the classical resonance of this powerful Oscar-nominated drama.
May 24, 2003
Weir's fish-out-of-water cop drama radiates marvelously as both a culture-clash romancer and as a compelling crime caper
| Original Score: 4/5
July 6, 2010
Witness warms up as the attraction builds between Ford, McGillis and Haas -- all performing excellently through this portion.
September 1, 2002
Poetic and moving film about the collision between two worlds incarnated in a big city cop and an Amish woman.

Ford is on top of his form, underplaying his role throughout and never mugging it up for the cameras.
