Alone Yet Not Alone

This movie based on the true story of Barbara and Regina Leininger, who were torn from their family in 1755, by Allegheny warriors during the French-Indian War and the jostling for land rights as well as the tax disputes that sparked the dispute between the European settlers and the aboriginal peoples.

Kelly Greyson stars as Barbara (young Barbara is played by Natalie Racoosin) and Regina is portrayed by Hayley Lovitt (Cassie Brennan takes on the role of the young Regina). Victoria Emmons (older) and Kelly Devens (younger) depict Marie, another young woman taken captive during the massacre.

The inspiration for this film is a book also titled Alone Yet Not Alone, written by Tracy Leininger Craven, a descendant of the depicted family. She named the novel after a Christian hymn.

Our Thoughts:

While the media debates whether or not the rescinded Oscar nomination is a slight agains faith based films, or just a disciplinary warning to the Academy Awards’ voting members and contestants, there is one thing that’s clear: All this attention will be a real blessing for the publicity department of this little, independent movie.  (Now, is that an act of God or not?)”
