Review: The Confession by Beverly Lewis DVD

 From Director Michael Landon Jr.
Starring Katie Leclerc and Sherry Stringfield
 Available on DVD June 11th
Movie Synopsis:
Raised by an Amish family, Katie Lapp always felt the call of another life. Now, her quest to find her birth-mother, Laura Mayfield-Bennett, has drawn her into world of the "Englishers." Along the way, two very different men try to help her overcome a devious scheme to steal her rightful inheritance. Business-minded but kind-hearted Justin Wirth reaches out to discover Katie's hidden secrets, while her childhood companion Daniel Fisher sacrifices his own happiness for her future. Katie's heart is divided between two worlds as love reveals the truth in the moving saga based on the hit novel from New York Times bestselling author Beverly Lewis.

My thoughts:   
My girls were so excited when they heard we would get this movie for review. They enjoyed the first movie in The Heritage of Lancaster County series called The Shunning.  Katie Lapp is a young woman who was adopted by an Amish couple in Hickory Hollow.  Now she's all grown up and searching for her birth mother.  When you mix desperation, big money, innocence, and terminal illness, you've got a recipe for an interesting movie. 

As you know, I'm quite picky with movies.   The Confession was a good, clean film.  I watched it with my family tonight.  There was no bad language or crude jokes.  There were no scenes that would cause you to shield your little ones' eyes or ears.  

I found it to be an entertaining movie.  I wanted to encourage the "good guys", shake a couple of "bad guys"  a couple of times, I just wanted to hug Laura and the real Katie Lapp.  I thought the head housekeeper was sweet and adorable.  We liked the movie very much.  But...  we didn't know that it would leave us hanging.  We found that frustrating because we have to wait a long time to find out whether there will be a happily ever after or not.  We are assuming that they will make The Reckoning into a movie as well.  If not, well I just might have to buy the book!

It's not the most exciting movie we've seen, but we would watch it again.  It will stand alone as a story, but I think you would enjoy it more if you watch or read The Shunning first.
