Amish Grace Movie....

This Sunday the Lifetime Movie Channel will show its offering "Amish Grace", a movie loosely based on the book of the same name.  The book explores the aftermath of the tragic school shooting in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania.  I am probably going to watch the movie just so I can be in the loop.  But I am not expecting much.  Reviewers seem to be universally giving the film a "thumbs" down, including the authors of the book it is based on.   Click here to read a review in the Philadelphia Inquirer.  While I am not expecting much redeeming value in the movie, one Amish authority has screened it and was a bit kinder.  She is actually going to use it as material for her college course at University of Dayton.  Soooo, I guess I am going to withhold full judgment until after the film airs.  As a general rule, though, Hollywood tends to oversimplify and sensationalize most aspects of Amish life.
