I found this movie to be very entertaining. Fans of Tim Daly do not want to miss this one. Although there are inconsistencies and unanswered questions in this film, i.e., they never explained how Johnny became wounded and in the area... But overall, the movie touched on a variety of issues, centering around Rebecca's religious beliefs. Rebecca was torn between her love for God and family and her unexpected yet forbidden love for Johnny. Her religion taught her that she couldn't have both. Johnny didn't alienate her...he didn't even try to win her over...their love just happened. Johnny was attracted to Rebecca's quiet beauty, both outward and inward. He was also enthralled by Benjo and the "idea" of a great family life. Johnny presented himself the way he was - faults and all. Rebecca found Johnny oddly entrancing despite his faults and lack of religious conviction. The movie was action-packed when necessary and dealt with Rebecca's religious beliefs in a compassionate and moving way. It was a bit unbelievable toward the end (I won't spoil it for you), but given that, I loved the movie and plan to watch it again.

Good romantic entertainmentReviewed bybeckyj40Vote: 8/10
A western romance with a soft touch and moral & religious edge. Tim Daly has never looked better. Naomi Watts also did a good job as did most of the actors. What I thought was interesting was the beautiful music. What most will not know is that it is Norwegian folk music - "Bla Tonar Fra Lom" by Pernille Anker Y Hans Brimi & "Jenta I Saueflokken" by Kirstin Braten Berg & Gunnar Stubsein. My niece married a Norwegian man and lives in Norway now and I've learned some Norwegian....and upon hearing the music I knew it wasn't German or Swiss, etc...it certainly doesn't take away from the story.....the music was hauntingly beautiful....although, to my knowledge there were never any "Plain People" or Amish or Quaker settlements in the US that were Norwegian. I do not know what hymn they were singing during the barn religious service or what language they were singing in. I don't think it was Norwegian....but I couldn't tell. I'd have to let my niece or her husband listen to it and watch the movie.
We've been down this road before and to better effect but "The Outsider", a made-for-television variation on both "Shane" and "Witness", isn't at all bad. Naomi Watts, (excellent), is the Mennonite widow who takes in a wounded gunfighter, (Timothy Daly), who in turn helps her in her battle with the men who murdered her husband and naturally they fall in love, much to the displeasure of her family and community. It's fairly conventional but it's well acted and it's entertaining. The director was Randa Haines, who made "Children of a Lesser God", and a good supporting cast includes the Carradine brothers, David and Keith.
