Review of devils playground

To the typical American teen, turning sixteen isnt much different from most of your birthdays. Sure, you are finally able to get your license, earning you a little more freedom than you had before. But, as a sixteen year old, you arent usually faced with making one of the most important decisions of your life. To the Amish community however, turning sixteen marks the beginning of rumspringa, a time period when Amish young adults are able to enjoy the freedoms of the English world, before deciding whether to join the Amish church. The film, The Devils Playground is a documentary, which focuses on the Amish communities period of rumspringa, chronicling the lives of several young adult Amish teens, as they choose if they want to join the Amish faith for life, or integrate themselves into the modern English world.
