Saving Sarah Cain is a heartfelt drama film directed by Michael Landon Jr. and released in 2007. The film is based on the novel The Redemption of Sarah Cain, written by Beverly Lewis. The movie follows the journey of Sarah Cain (played by Abigail Mason), a successful newspaper columnist who lives in Portland, Oregon with her boyfriend, Paul. Sarah has built a successful career for herself, but she is not content with her life. All of that changes when she receives the news that her estranged sister has died, leaving behind five Amish children who are now in a foster home. Sarah is the only blood relative who can take them in, and she decides to do so, despite the fact that she has no experience with kids, let alone Amish ones.

Sarah travels to the Amish community in Pennsylvania, where she meets their caretaker, an elderly Amish man named David (Elliott Gould). At first, Sarah is hesitant to accept David's help, but eventually, she becomes more grateful for his guidance. She also begins to understand the Amish way of life and the importance of faith, family, and community.

The adjustment to Sarah's new life isn't easy. The children are still grieving the loss of their mother and are reluctant to accept Sarah as their new guardian. On top of that, Sarah struggles to adjust to her new surroundings. She is used to the fast-paced life of the city, while the Amish way of life is more simple and slow.

Sarah also meets the bishop of the Amish community, who is played by Lisa Pepper. The bishop is skeptical of Sarah's ability to care for the children, as well as her intentions for taking them in. As a result, Sarah faces numerous challenges as she tries to gain the trust and respect of the Amish community.

Throughout the movie, Sarah learns the importance of forgiveness, acceptance, and selflessness. She must learn to let go of her own desires and put the needs of the children first. In doing so, she gains a newfound appreciation for the Amish way of life and finds a sense of purpose and belonging.

The acting in the movie is fantastic, particularly by Abigail Mason, who convincingly portrays Sarah's transformation throughout the film. Additionally, Elliott Gould provides a strong performance as David, adding depth and heart to his character. Lisa Pepper also stands out, playing a distrustful bishop with a lot of nuance.

The movie's cinematography is also noteworthy, capturing the beauty of the pastoral Amish landscape. The camera work is calm and simple, allowing the performances and the story to take center stage.

Overall, Saving Sarah Cain is a heartwarming and engaging film that explores the themes of family, faith, and identity. The story is inspiring, and the performances are excellent. This movie is perfect for anyone who enjoys uplifting dramas that deal with real-life issues.

Saving Sarah Cain is a 2007 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 43 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.0.
