"Looooove this movie. It’s really good. Everyone in it is wonderful! Lukas Haas is a little boy in this film and he is just fantastic! It’s a crime, a little action and drama. Plus, I don’t know if it’s his first movie, but Viggo Mortensen has a small role in this! Watch it! "
"It’s not Han Solo or Indian Jones, but John Book is a fully rounded character. A tough cop with a soft spot for the young witness to a murder. Endangered by the reveal that the murderer is a high powered police officer. His need to protect the boy has him living in an Amish community learning their way of life and falling in love with the widowed mother of the boy. Directed masterfully and great acting from all involved in the movie make this a must watch."
