Tagline: Which path will they choose?

Plot: Lucy Walker's DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND documents the Amish rite of passage known as "Rumspringa," during which a young Amish person leaves the community to experience the "English World" or "Devil's Playground" before they decide whether or not to join the Amish church. Walker pays particular attention to Faron, a young man who seems particularly adept at navigating the seamier side of the "English World" as he begins using drugs and acquires a girlfriend, even though he intends to return to the Amish community. Thoughtful and provocative without being exploitative, DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND manages to be both touching and shocking as it explores the volatility of adolescence and religious faith.
