Alone Yet Not Alone (2013) Rated PG-13

Alone yet not aloneIn 1755, the colonies clashed with French and English settlers. As The French and Indian War started heating up, some of the Native American tribes sided with the French, scalping some settlers and taking others prisoner.  At this time, the Leininger family, who were German settlers, came to the colonies for religious freedom. As the conflict rises to the boiling point, two of the Leininger girls are taken into captivity by a hostile Native American tribe. Their hope is based on their faith in God that He will deliver them. Based on Tracy Leininger Craven’s novel by the same name, which recounts the true story of Barbara and Regina Leininger, who were taken from their family and forced to live with the  Delaware Indians. Starring Kelly Greyson, Natalie Racoosin, Jenn Gotzon, Clay Walker

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Even though it is a Christian film, it has none of the stereotypical sweetness that many Christian films have.  This was a hard and scary time for the settlers, and the filmmakers do not shrink from depicting that.  Some of the acting is a bit melodramatic, and some of the religious overtones seem out of place at times, but neither distracts from the story.  Also, the cinematography is beautiful.  This is one of the better Christian films I have seen, and it is well worth a watch.
