"The Confession" on DVD June 11th! Review & GIVEAWAY!! (6/19) *Closed*

*I was provided a copy of The Confession for review purposes and was not compensated in any way. All opinions are my own.

About the movie:
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.


My Review:
The Confession is the second movie in a series based off of novels by Beverly Lewis.  This movie originally appeared on the Hallmark Channel on May 11th, so some of you may have had the chance to see it already.  I, on the other hand, just viewed it last weekend and absolutely LOVED it!

I saw the first movie, The Shunning, this winter after receiving a gift subscription to Netflix and COULD NOT WAIT to see the next movie!  I even went online to see if it was out yet and was disappointed to see that I was going to have to wait a while.  Well, when I was contacted to view The Confession for review I was ecstatic to have the opportunity and it did not disappoint!  I immediately went online again looking up the book, knowing that the next movie won't be out for a bit...but I don't know if I want to read the book since I'm afraid it will ruin the next movie for me! LOL!

Okay, I'm rambling, but from my ramblings you know that I would highly recommend watching The Confession.  My kids have even seen it and enjoyed it, so it's definitely one that can be watched as a family as well.  The acting is wonderful.  The story is moving.  It makes you happy, mad, sad and, in the end, anxious to know what's going to happen next.  Although I don't think it's absolutely necessary, I do think you'll enjoy this movie more if you've seen (or read) The Shunning first.

Buy it!
Available June 11th on amazon.com for $14.96.
