Gina Wilhelm Actress – Amish Grace
Tonight The Lifetime Movie Network premiered the original movie “Amish Grace.”
The movie is a dramatization of a real incident in the Amish community of Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania in which a gunman killed five Amish schoolgirls before taking his own life.
Tammy Blanchard played the widow of the gunman. The Huffington Post called her “an amazing actress” who “deserves to get better and better roles.”
Kimberly Williams-Paisley played the mother of one of the girls who finds it difficult to forgive, feeling it would be an abandonment of her daughter’s love.
The movie tells how the Amish put their faith into action at the most difficult part of their lives. It’s based on the book of the same name.
It premiered Sunday at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific, and reruns March 29, April 1, 2, 10, and 11. Check local listings for details.
