The Shunning Reviews
Good for falling asleep to:)
First, Katie is not like other Amish. She likes "English" things like playing the guitar and thinking for herself. Because, as we all know, genetics is what determines degree of Amishness.
Then a woman who is her biological mother (a cardboard cutout Lifetime character) goes looking for her daughter long-lost daughter because she finds out that she has a completely treatable and operable cancer. A note that she drops off at an Amish market miraculously ends up where it belongs, and Katie learns the truth.
Realizing she is not really Amish, she does things that the audience wants to see, like venturing out in the world for the first time, trying on modern clothes, and generally being an alien among us. Nevermind that she presumably already did all this for Rumspringa.
The film continues this oscillation between naive misconceptions (about identity, adoption, and the Amish) and forced dramatic, which we know are supposed to be deep and touching only by the soundtrack.
Overall, don't waste your time. Even if you like cheesy Lifetime films for what they are, this one is not particularly interesting.
