Love Finds You in Charm (2015) Rated NR

love finds you in charmA young Amish woman who is unsatisfied with her life at home and curious about the world outside visits her cousin for the summer and struggles with choosing which world to live in. Based on the book Love Finds You in Charm, Ohio by Annalisa Daughety. Starring Trevor Donovan, Danielle Chuchran, Drew Fuller

This movie is quaint and thoughtful in its handling of the subject matter. I was nervous that they would sugar coat this story, making light of what is a genuine struggle among the Amish youth, but they represented it in the best possible way.

Only two things they missed stood out to me.  The first was the absence of the Amish speaking Pennsylvania Dutch, or at least including key words and phrases to make it feel more authentic.  The second was the failure to make a clear distinction between the two worlds.  It seemed too easy for the main character to cross over to the ways of the modern world; I would have thought there would be more conflict over such a decision.  Other than that, this film is well-made and  worth a watch.
