saigepaintstheskyThe latest in the terrific series of American Girls movies is the story of Saige (Sidney Fullmer), a talented artist and a horse-lover.  She is devastated to learn that due to budget cuts, there will be no more art class in her school.  Just as painful, her lifetime best friend seems to like a new friend better.  Everything she thought she understood and everyone she thought understood her seem to be changing.

Then it gets worse.  Her adored grandmother (Jane Seymour), an accomplished artist and Saige’s role model, is hurt in an accident.

Saige has to learn some new skills and develop her understanding and courage in this heartwarming story of friendship, problem-solving, and making change work for you.
