...will probably find a welcome reception among the nominal "family values" audience, but they deserve "nice" and "decent" movies that offer more engaging and challenging fare than this...

Audience Reviews for Saving Sarah Cain


I wasn't expecting this to be so good. I only saw this because I was curious about films made about the Amish. Maybe it's just me, but this was a tearjerker and a pretty good family film. The acting is not that great of course, but that's mostly forgiving for the heartfelt message this story portrays. I know that is not a film for everyone and some may find it passable because of the subject matter but I really did feel that it was worth watching.

With a Title like that you would think this is a chick film, but you like me would be wrong. Its pure family. Good Christian Family Film at That. At the age of 14 I had the pleasure of spending the summer living with a Amish Family, some things I saw in this film I don't remember their doing, so I question if all of the movies actions were authentic. The movie has a wonderful ending, bring out the Kleenex. 4 1/2 stars. The youngest of the Amish Actors female gets 5 stars. Get it and add it to your collection.

I thought this was a pretty good movie. Better than your average made for TV movie. I thought it had potential to be a little deeper,but very good none the less.
