The Shunning is a drama based on the book by Beverly Lewis, best-selling author of Amish fiction. (I really enjoy her books). This Hallmark movie is about Katie Lapp, a young Amish woman, who discovers a secret about her life on the eve of her Amish wedding to the local bishop. The ending is a bit abrupt, but if you want to find out what happens to Katie read the last two books in the Heritage of Lancaster County Trilogy: The Confession (#2) The Reckoning (#3). The movie was touching and true to the book and Amish culture and religion.
Dolphin Tale, is a drama based on the true story of the rescued dolphin Winter and the people who worked so hard to save her life. An inspiring story. I liked that real Winter played her own character. After the movie I went to the website SeeWinter.com to see her for myself.
