Review
Harrison Ford is best in serious roles, such as here where he plays a Philadelphia police captain on the run from a dirty police chief, and hiding out on an Amish farm. The Amish are portrayed as kind, sensitive, and wise. This film makes you long for the good farm life. The ending makes the movie, when HF walks away from Kelly McGillis, an Amish girl he has fallen in love with, but with whom he realizes he can have no future because their worlds are so dissimilar.   "Check it Out"
