(1985) Tough Philadelphia police detective (Harrison Ford) hides out among the Amish to protect his life and that of a young boy who witnessed a murder committed by a corrupt fellow detective. He and the boy's widowed mother (Kelly McGillis) are drawn to each other despite their different worlds. Director Peter Weir gets excellent performances in a good romantic melodrama that also offers some relatively thoughtful reflections on violence and non-violence. Some graphic violence and brief nudity are handled as restrained but essential plot devices. (L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling) (R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian) Showtime (cable)
