After witnessing a brutal murder, a very young Amish boy, and his widowed mother, Rachel, played by Kelly McGillis, seek police protection from John Book, a Philadelphia cop played by Harrison Ford. When Book discovers corruption in the narcotics division of the police department, he takes Rachel and Samuel to hide in the Amish countryside. There Book and Rachel begin a cautious romance. This is both an electrifying Hitchcock type mystery and a poignant love story with issues of very tough life choices to be made.
The movie was filmed on location in Philadelphia and the rural Pennsylvania towns of Intercourse, Lancaster, Strasburg, and Parkersburg. Local Amish were willing to work as carpenters and electricians, but declined to appear on film, so many of the extras actually were Mennonites.
Discussion of ‘Witness’ will be facilitated by Mary Gossard.
