CULVER CITY, CALIF. (April 10, 2013) – Katie Leclerc (TV’s “Switched at Birth”) and three-time Emmy Award® nominee Sherry Stringfield (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, TV’s “ER,” 1995-1997) star in the uplifting drama BEVERLY LEWIS’ THE CONFESSION, debuting on DVD June 11th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and AFFIRM Films/Provident Films.
Directed by Michael Landon Jr. (Beverly Lewis’ The Shunning, Love Comes Softly), the inspiring film is a sequel to the Hallmark Channel’s hit movie, Beverly Lewis’ The Shunning, and is based on the second novel of “The Heritage of Lancaster County” trilogy from New York Times best-selling author Beverly Lewis. Katie Lapp (Leclerc), a young Amish woman, goes on a journey in search of her identity -- only to find herself embroiled in a mystery that must be solved before she can be reunited with the “Englisher” mother, who gave her up for adoption 20 years earlier. The film also stars Bill Oberst Jr. (The Secret Life of Bees), Cameron Deane Stewart (Pitch Perfect, High School Crush) and Julia Whelan (TV’s “Once and Again”).
Raised by an Amish family, Katie Lapp (Katie Leclerc, TV's "Switched at Birth") always felt the call of another life. Now, her quest to find her birth-mother, Laura Mayfield-Bennett (Sherry Stringfield, TV's "ER"), 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 (Michael Rupnow) reaches out to discover Katie's hidden secrets, while her childhood companion Daniel Fisher (Cameron Deane Stewart) 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.
Based on the novel by Beverly Lewis and directed by Michael Landon Jr., the film has a screenplay by Brian Bird and Michael Landon Jr. The film was produced by David R. Kappes and executive produced by Brian Bird, Maura Dunbar and Michael Landon Jr.
BEVERLY LEWIS’ THE CONFESSION has a running time of approximately 88 minutes and is not rated.
Julie's Thoughts: I am a big fan of Beverly Lewis. I have read The Shunning, The Confession and The Reckoning which are apart of The Heritage of Lancaster County trilogy. I have also read her Abram's Daughter's series. I love reading about the Amish and I think she does a great job of writing about them with a good storyline that keeps you interested. When I got an email about reviewing the movie The Confession, I had to say yes. I watched it last night and I have to say I love the actress that plays Katie Lapp. I think she was perfect for the role based on what I remember about the book. I think they did a great job of bringing this story to the screen. I hope they do plan to make the third book in the series. If they do I hope they keep the same cast.
When it comes to Christian themed movies, I really like Michael Landon, Jr. In some ways I feel like I grew up with his father in the sense that I watched a lot of Little House on the Prairie and Highway to Heaven. Anyway, I find his movies to be well done, well cast and they always present a good story.
I really recommend this movie if you are a fan of his, Beverly Lewis or just like a nice story with a happy ending.
